A list of the BA/Leverhulme Senior Research Fellowship Awards made in 2013

The British Academy is pleased to announce the result of the 2012-13 competition for Senior Research Fellowships and the Thank -Offering to Britain Fellowship. These awards were decided by the Research Awards Committee in March 2013, and will be taken up by the award-holders starting in the autumn of 2013.

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.
