Congratulations to Prof. Rik Henson, MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, University of Cambridge, who has been elected this year as a Fellow of the British Academy: https://www.thebritishacademy.ac.uk/fellows/rik-henson-fba/
Rik said “This honour is of course a reflection of the great mentors I’ve had, the great colleagues I work with, and the unwavering support of my family and friends.”
Each year, the British Academy elects to its fellowship up to 52 outstanding UK-based scholars. Fellows are the major category of fellowship at the Academy. They are scholars who have ‘attained distinction in any of the branches of study which it is the object of the Academy to promote’ – ie, 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.
