The British Academy awards 43 new Mid-Career Fellowships to support outstanding SHAPE researchers

20 Apr 2023

The British Academy has awarded over £6.5 million in Mid-Career Fellowships to 43 outstanding mid-career academics whose research will promote public engagement with, and understanding of, the SHAPE disciplines.

The Mid-Career Fellowships, worth a maximum of £160,000 each, will free researchers from normal teaching and administrative commitments, enabling them to pursue a major piece of research that advances understanding in their subject area.

These awards recognise researchers who have achieved distinction as excellent communicators and ‘champions’ in their fields. In previous years, the work undertaken by British Academy Mid-Career Fellows has led to critically-acclaimed documentaries, collaborations with art galleries, and BBC radio shows.

The 2022/2023 Mid-Career Fellows include:

  • ‘A Feminist Geography of Debt and Housing Precarity’ – Professor Katherine Brickell, King’s College London
  • ‘Amnesties, International Crimes and Armed Conflict’ – Professor Louise Mallinder, Queen’s University Belfast
  • ‘Maps, Space, and Culture in China Since 1000’ – Dr Stephen Whiteman, Courtauld Institute of Art
  • ‘Screening Sexual Violence: Silence Breaking and Performance Activism Post #MeToo’ – Dr Donna Peberdy, Southampton Solent University
  • ‘The Gang Diaries: Lessons from Street Culture around the World’ – Dr Alistair Fraser, University of Glasgow
  • ‘Hanging in the Balance: The Function of Justification in Achieving Women’s Equality’ - Dr Meghan Campbell, University of Birmingham
  • ‘Hotelympus: A History of Power and Prejudice in Modern Britain’ – Dr Eloise Moss, University of Manchester.
