Two City professors become Fellows of the Academy of Social Sciences
Professors Theo Farrell and Charles Baden-Fuller recognised for “excellence and impact”
Two academics from City, University of London have been made Fellows of the Academy of Social Sciences (AcSS).
Professor Theo Farrell, (right) Dean of the School of Arts and Social Sciences, and Professor Charles Baden-Fuller, of Cass Business School, were both chosen after an extensive peer-review process.
The academy is a representative body for social sciences in the UK, with 90,000 members and around 1,100 Fellows, including academics, practitioners and policymakers.
Announcing 47 new Fellows, AcSS said the individuals were being recognised for the “excellence and impact of their work through the social science for the public benefit”.
Professor Roger Goodman, Chair of the academy, said: “The outstanding contributions of each new Fellow are a testament to the breadth of the social sciences, both in their ability to inform policy for public benefit, as well as in addressing some of our most pressing societal issues.
“The range of expertise of our more than 1,100 eminent Fellows speaks to the academy’s growing reach as the representative voice of the social science community as a whole.”
Charles Baden-Fuller (right, receiving the City Chancellor's Award) is Centenary Professor of Strategy in the Faculty of Management at Cass Business School.
Professor Theo Farrell became Dean of the School of Arts and Social Sciences in September 2016.
