Four academics from the College of Humanities and Social Science have been elected as Fellows of the British Academy.

The four academics are:

  • Professor Christine Bell, Professor of Constitutional Law and Executive Director of the Global Justice Academy

Distinguished in their field

They are among more than 40 highly distinguished UK academics from 18 institutions elected as Fellows in recognition of their outstanding research.

The British Academy was founded in 1902 to inspire, recognise and support excellence and high achievement in the humanities and social sciences and to champion their role and value.

This year we have the honour of once again welcoming the finest researchers and scholars into our Fellowship. Their collective work and expertise are testament to why research in the humanities and social sciences is vital for our understanding of the world and humanity.
