On her election to a British Academy Fellowship, Meg, whose research interests include organisational economics and the effect of incentives, commented:
“I am honoured to have been elected to the Fellowship of the British Academy. The Fellowship includes many whose research was and continues to be a major inspiration for me. In the current environment, it is particularly satisfying to be recognised by an important institution that consistently values rigorous analysis and clear communication.”
Geoff, who described being elected to the British Academy as “A nice surprise!”, works on the relationship between social, psychological and political divisions, with a particular emphasis on class inequality and political representation.
Seventy-six Fellows were appointed on Friday, including 20 Corresponding Fellows based at universities outside the UK.
Sir David Cannadine, President of the British Academy, welcomed the new Fellows. He said:
“The British Academy has always recognised pioneering research in the humanities and social sciences, and 2019 is no exception. This year we have elected a particularly multi-skilled and versatile cohort of Fellows whose research crosses conventional academic boundaries.”
