We are thrilled to announce that Professor David Dyzenhaus, who teaches in both the Department of Philosophy and the Faculty of Law, has been elected as a Corresponding Fellow to the British Academy in recognition of his outstanding achievements in the humanities. The British Academy this year welcomed 84 new fellows, 52 from universities in the United Kingdom, the rest from elsewhere in the world.

Founded in 1902, the British Academy is the UK’s national academy for the humanities and social sciences. It is a fellowship comprising more than 1,400 leading scholars in these areas from Great Britain and beyond.

Welcoming the new fellows, the British Academy’s freshly minted president, Julia Black, claimed that in a post-pandemic world, “the need for SHAPE [the social sciences, humanities, and arts] subjects has never been greater,” applauding the incoming scholars’ diversity of research interests and “impressive” excellence.

Heartfelt congratulations to Professor Dyzenhaus on his latest achievement.
