The Fellowship of the British Academy
The British Academy Fellowship is over 900 scholars elected for their distinction in the humanities and social sciences. Each year, the British Academy elects to its Fellowship up to 42 outstanding UK-based scholars who have achieved academic distinction as reflected in scholarly research activity and publication. Others based overseas can also be elected as Corresponding Fellows, and, in addition, the Academy can elect Honorary Fellows.
