David Parker Elected Fellow of the British Academy


At its annual meeting in July, the British Academy elected 53 new Fellows. On of the new Fellows is a well-known textual critic – David Parker, Edward Cadbury Professor of Theology and Director of the Institute for the Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing (ITSEE).

In the British Academy press release, Sir Adam Roberts, President of the Academy says:
The new Fellows, who come from 23 institutions across the UK, have outstanding expertise across the board – from social policy and government, to sign language and music. Our Fellows play a vital role in sustaining the Academy’s activities - from identifying excellence to be supported by research awards, to contributing to policy reports and speaking at the Academy’s public events. Their presence in the Academy will help it to sustain its support for research across the humanities and social sciences, and to inspire public interest in these disciplines.
