Professor of Psychology Neil Macrae of the University of Aberdeen has been made a Fellow of the British Academy.
The Professor is one of only 38 academics to be elected a Fellow at the British Academy’s Annual General Meeting on Thursday July 21.
Professor Macrae will join the body comprising of more than 900 Fellows including Marina Warner, Seamus Heany, Eric Hobswam and Lord Bragg.
Neil Macrae is a Professor of Social Cognition at the University of Aberdeen and was elected because of his contribution to understanding the way we view ourselves.
Fellows are scholars who have 'attained distinction in any of the branches of study which it is the object of the Academy to promote’.
Professor Macrae said “It is honour for myself and for the University to be made a Fellow.
“It recognises the importance of the subject and the work that I am doing.”
The British Academy is the UK’s national academy for the promotion of the humanities and social sciences.
Sir Adam Roberts, President of the British Academy, said,
“I congratulate all the distinguished Fellows who have been elected to the Academy this year, on achieving this peer group recognition of the outstanding contribution they’ve made to scholarship and research in the humanities or social sciences.
“Election is not only an honour, but also a beginning. I look forward to their active participation in the life and work of the academy.”
