Congratulations to Emeritus Professor Chris Candlin
Congratulations to Emeritus Professor Chris Candlin on being awarded the title of Academician by the Academy of Social Sciences in the UK. This is indeed a well-deserved honour. Three members nominated by BAAL have been awarded the title of Academician by the Academy of Social Sciences:
- Emeritus Professor Christopher Candlin (Macquarie University, Australia)
- Professor Paul Meara (Swansea University, UK)
- Professor Srikant Sarangi (Cardiff University, UK)
BAAL members who know their work, both in their research and their contributions to BAAL and AILA, will know that the recognition is well-deserved.
The Academy of Social Sciences is a body linked to many of the main learned societies in the UK. Besides recognising the contributions of academicians, it promotes links between these learned societies, and campaigns for a stronger voice for UK social science in policy-making.
