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.
