We are delighted to note that Nuffield Fellows and associates have been honoured in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List for 2020.
Nuffield Senior Research Fellow and former Professor of Global and Imperial History John Darwin was awarded a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in recognition of services to the study of global history.
On receiving the honour, John commented:
“Getting global history, and Oxford's Centre for Global History, underway was very much a team effort which I was proud to be part of. I hope this award will also help to highlight Nuffield's commitment to global history and studies”
