University of Glasgow professor elected Fellow of the British Academy
Dauvit Broun, Professor of Scottish History at the University of Glasgow and Director of ArtsLab, has been elected as a Fellow of the British Academy.
British Academy Fellows represent the very best of humanities and social sciences research, both in the UK and globally.
Vice Principal and Head of the College of Arts at the University of Glasgow, Professor Roibeard Ó Maolalaigh, says, “This honour is richly deserved by Professor Dauvit ('Davie') Broun. The British Academy recognises the inspirational work he has carried out over many years to building up Scottish History and Scottish Studies here at the University of Glasgow. Davie is a very modest man but the importance of his contribution cannot and should not be overstated. As a leading Scottish historian he has made world-leading transformational contributions to History and Digital Humanities. He follows in the footsteps of Professor John Butt and Professor Nigel Leask – in the fields of Music and English Literature respectively – in being elected to the British Academy from the University's College of Arts."
Professor Broun enthuses, “I am delighted that research in medieval Scottish history has been recognised by scholars at the highest level working in medieval studies in the UK. My entire career has been at the University of Glasgow. This is, therefore, above all, a direct testimony of the quality of the stimulation and support I have received here, working with outstanding colleagues and students in the Centre for Scottish and Celtic Studies, and in a series of AHRC-funded collaborative projects. I am delighted by this recognition of the University of Glasgow's world-class environment for teaching and research in Scottish and Celtic studies, and in Arts and Humanities more generally.”
