Social Sciences and BBC Ideas launch video partnership

BBC Ideas thumbnail

The Social Sciences Division's Research, Impact and Engagement Team has launched an exciting new partnership with BBC Ideas, which will see the co-production of 4-6 videos to be published on the BBC ( and University of Oxford websites. We’re looking for exciting new research ideas - as well as new perspectives on older ones - to feature in this co-production, which is aimed at a general audience of under-35s. 

The call for expressions of interest will be open to all faculty members and research staff from departments in the Social Sciences Division. Fixed term researchers are particularly encouraged to apply. Established academics can nominate themselves or members of their research team to take part - this might include doctoral students and research staff. Students are not eligible to apply.

Watch a YouTube video of the call launch (requires SSO login), including guidance and advice from BBC Ideas Editor, Bethan Jinkinson (Tuesday 7 February 2023).
