Stefan Vogenauer has been admitted to the British Academy
Following his election to the British Academy in July 2021, Stefan Vogenauer has now been formally admitted to the British Academy, the United Kingdom’s national academy for the humanities and the social sciences. The ceremony, postponed from last years due to the Corona pandemic, took place in London.
The British Academy describes itself as having three roles: an independent fellowship of world-leading scholars and researchers; a funding body that supports new research, nationally and internationally; and a forum for debate and engagement – a voice that champions the humanities and social sciences.
Election to the Corresponding Fellowship is the highest honour that the Academy confers on non-UK residents in recognition of scholarly distinction in the humanities and social sciences. Across the 21 subject sections of the Academy, no more than 20 elections are made in each year to the Corresponding Fellowship.
