Professors Neta Crawford and Jane Green  have cause for celebration after being elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Professor Crawford has been made a member and Fellow of the Academy - whose notable members have included George Washington, Madeleine Albright and Martin Luther King Jr - in the field of Public Affairs and Public Policy.

Meanwhile Professor Green has been made a member and Fellow of and an International Honorary Member in the field of Political Science.

Professor Crawford is Montague Burton Chair in International Relations and also holds a Professorial Fellowship at Balliol College.

Her research focuses on war, ethics, normative change, emotions in world politics, and climate change.

It is an honour to join such an accomplished interdisciplinary group of scholars, past and present. 

And I am particularly pleased to be included despite having decamped from the US to the UK.

Professor Neta Crawford

Professor Green is a Professor at Nuffield College, a member of the leadership team of the British Election Study and directs a research centre focusing on accountability, representation, British elections and political science communication beyond academia.

Being elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences is a huge honour.

I’m grateful for the many opportunities I’ve been given over the years, not least of which the chance to Co-Direct the British Election Study for the last ten years and to reach large audiences with our analysis, and to latterly join Nuffield College and DPIR.

I’m very fortunate to work with great colleagues who I continually learn from, and I look forward to now contributing to the American Academy.

Professor Jane Green

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences is one of the oldest learned societies in America - founded in 1780 during the American Revolution.

It is an honorary society that recognises and celebrates the excellence of its members and an independent research centre - convening leaders from across disciplines, professions, and perspectives to address significant national and global challenges.

Its work has helped set the direction of research and analysis in science and technology policy, global security and international affairs, social policy, education, the humanities, and the arts.

The new class will be inducted at a ceremony on September 29 2023, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
