Bangor University Academics Honoured by Welsh Academy

Three Bangor University academics are among the new entrants to the Learned Society of Wales’ Fellowship.

They join 40 other new Fellows, all of whom share a link with Wales, its universities or intellectual life and are drawn from all specialisms.

The new Fellows from Bangor University are:

· Professor Nathan Abrams FRHistS FHEA, Professor of Film Studies

· Emeritus Professor Peter Field, Emeritus Professor, School of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics

· Dr Sue Niebrzydowski, Reader in Medieval Literature

Election to the Fellowship is public recognition of excellence and takes place following a rigorous examination of each nominee’s achievements in their relevant field.

The Society’s Fellowship now numbers 562. Their combined expertise allows the Society to strengthen its contribution to Welsh public life, through its contributions to government policy development, public lectures and seminars and its expanding Wales Studies programme.

The new Fellows will be formally admitted at the Society’s AGM which will be held, remotely this year due to the Covid-19 restrictions, on 20th May.
