The Academy of Social Sciences has announced today (March 31) that it has conferred the award of Fellow on 47 leading social scientists.

Professor Carey Jewitt, Director of the UCL Knowledge Lab at the UCL Institute of Education (IOE), is one of only two UCL staff members to receive this award. 

Professor Jewitt is a leading innovator of social science methodology, particularly in multimodal digital communication and learning. 

The 47 new Fellows are academics, practitioners, and policymakers across the social sciences. They have been recognised after an extensive peer review process for the excellence and impact of their work through the use of social science for public benefit.

Announcing the conferment, Professor Roger Goodman FAcSS, Chair of the Academy said:

"The outstanding contributions of each new Fellow are a testament to the breadth of the social sciences, both in their ability to inform policy for public benefit, as well as in addressing some of our most pressing societal issues.

"The range of expertise of our more than 1,100 eminent Fellows speaks to the Academy's growing reach as the representative voice of the social science community as a whole."
