Fellowship honour for academic
A lecturer from the Department of European and International Studies has been made a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
Dr Marianna Griffini was nominated for a fellowship in recognition of her work on the civic discourse of populist parties and postcolonial legacies in contemporary politics and was confirmed as a fellow by the society late last year.
The Royal Society of Arts was founded in 1754 and is a global community of leaders in the fields of art, literature, journalism, and business. It has a network of 30,000 fellows and notable fellows have included Marie Curie, Charles Dickens and Karl Marx.
Dr Griffini said: “It was a great honour to be made a fellow and I am looking forward to continuing to contribute to the mission of the society through my teaching and research.”
