Professor Alan Barnard has been elected as a Fellow of the British Academy
We are thrilled to announce that Alan Barnard, Professor of the Anthropology of Southern Africa, has been elected a Fellow of the British Academy. Each year, the British Academy elects to its Fellowship up to 38 outstanding UK-based scholars. Fellows are scholars who have 'attained distinction in any of the branches of study which it is the object of the Academy to promote' i.e. the humanities and the social sciences. Election is a mark of distinction, as only a very small number of scholars in any field are elected.
