The British Academy has elected Professor Elizabeth Anderson to its prestigious Corresponding Fellowship. Anderson currently serves as John Dewey Distinguished University Professor, John Rawls Collegiate Professor, and Arthur F. Thurnau Professor in the Philosophy Department at the University of Michigan.
The Corresponding Fellowship honors overseas scholars who have attained "high international standing" in the humanities and social sciences. Professor Anderson is one of 30 Corresponding Fellows elected in 2020.
The British Academy is the United Kingdom's National Academy for the humanities and social sciences. Established in 1902, the Academy is an independent fellowship, funding body, and forum for debate and engagement among world-leading scholars and researchers.
On July 14, UK-based Prospect Magazine also named Professor Anderson one of its "top 50 thinkers for the COVID-19 age."
