Senior Research Fellowships - Past Awards: 2012

A list of the BA/Leverhulme Senior Research Fellowship Awards made in 2012

The British Academy is pleased to announce the result of the 2011-12 competition for the Senior Research Fellowships. These awards were decided by the Research Awards Committee in March 2012, and will be taken up by the award-holders starting in the autumn of 2012.

The purpose of these Fellowships is to provide a period of research leave for one year for established scholars during which they will be able to concentrate on bringing a major piece of research towards completion while their normal teaching and administrative duties are covered by a full-time replacement.

Awards listed in alphabetical order by award holder's surname. All institutions named correct at point of original application.
