Professorial Fellows Melinda Mills and Ben Ansell, have been elected to Fellowships of the British Academy, alongside Nuffield Honorary Fellow and alumnus Jerry Hausman (DPhil Economics 1972), who was awarded a Corresponding Fellowship.

Nuffield Warden Andrew Dilnot has also been awarded an Honorary Fellowship.

On the elections, Andrew commented:

“The work of the British Academy is central to the social sciences and humanities in the UK.  It is a delight to see Ben, Melinda and Jerry elected to Fellowships and I feel deeply privileged to be elected to an Honorary Fellowship.”

Ben, Melinda, Jerry and Andrew join 22 other current Nuffield Fellows who hold British Academy Fellowships, including former Wardens Sir David Cox and Sir Stephen Nickell.

British Academy Fellows are part of a community of over 1,400 of the leading minds in the UK’s national academy for the humanities and the social sciences. 76 new Fellows were announced today – a record-breaking number for the Academy.

On the announcement of the new Fellows, Professor Sir David Cannadine, President of the British Academy, said:

“I am delighted to welcome this year’s exceptionally talented new Fellows to the Academy. Including historians and economists, neuroscientists and legal theorists, they bring a vast range of expertise, insights and experience to our most distinguished fellowship. I look forward to working closely with them to build on the Academy’s reputation and achievements.”
