22 July 2022
A total of seven leading UCL academics have been elected as Fellows of the British Academy in recognition of their contribution to the humanities and social sciences.
The British Academy, founded in 1902, is the UK’s national academy for the humanities and social sciences, and brings together over 1600 leading minds in these subjects from the UK and overseas.
It is also a funding body for research - nationally and internationally - and a forum for debate and engagement.
The seven UCL academics who have been elected as British Academy Fellows are:
- Professor Richard Bellamy, Professor of Political Science at the Department of Political Science, The School of Public Policy
- Professor Lucy Green, Emerita Professor of Music Education at IOE, UCL’s Faculty of Education and Society
- Professor Nicola Miller, Professor of Latin American History and Director of Institute of Advanced Studies
- Professor Catherine Price, Director of Wellcome Centre for Human Neuro-imaging
- Professor Eleanor Robson, Professor of Ancient Middle-Eastern History at the History Department
- Professor Uta Schonberg, Professor of Economics at the Department of Economics
- Professor Dame Anne Johnson (Honorary Fellow), Professor of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at the UCL Institute for Global Health
They join another 78 Fellows who have been elected to the Fellowship, including 52 UK Fellows, 29 Corresponding Fellows and four Honorary Fellows.
Professor Geraint Rees, UCL Vice-Provost (Research, Innovation and Global Engagement), said: “This is an extraordinary achievement and I’d like to congratulate everyone for their work, which makes such an important contribution to understanding the world around us.
“Social sciences, arts and humanities help us make sense of our past, imagine our futures, and improve the societies we live in. These fellowships are recognition of the value that research brings to our teaching and learning, to the academic community, and the wider world.”
President of the British Academy, Professor Julia Black, said: "I am delighted to welcome these distinguished and pioneering scholars to our Fellowship. I am equally delighted that we have so many new female Fellows. While I hope this means that the tide is finally turning for women in academia, there is still much to do to make the research world diverse and open to all.
“With our new Fellows’ expertise and insights, the Academy is better placed than ever to open new seams of knowledge and understanding and to enhance the wellbeing and prosperity of societies around the world. I congratulate each of our new Fellows on their achievement and look forward to working with them.”
