Professor Mamadou Diawara was elected to the Fellowship of the British Academy as a Corresponding Fellow at the Annual General Meeting on the 21. July.
He accepted the election and will be affiliated to the disciplinary Section “Africa, Asia and the Middle East” within the Academy.
Election to the Corresponding Fellowship is the highest honour of scholarly distinction in the humanities and social sciences.
“A person may be elected a Corresponding Fellow if he or she has attained high international standing in any of the branches of study which is the object of the Academy to promote; and is, in the judgment of the Council, whose decision on the matter shall be final, not habitually resident in the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands”
We, his friends and colleagues, congratulate Mamadou for this great achievement!
