Elhanan Helpman, the Galen L. Stone Professor of International Trade, was named a 2012 British Academy Corresponding Fellow by the British Academy at its recent annual general meeting. The British Academy recognizes highly distinguished academics for their outstanding research, and fellows represent the full range of the academy’s subject areas, from early literature to law.

“Our fellows play a vital role in sustaining the academy’s activities, from identifying excellence to be supported by research awards to contributing to policy reports and speaking at the academy’s public events,” said Sir Adam Roberts, president of the academy. “Their presence in the academy will help it to sustain its support for research across the humanities and social sciences, and to inspire public interest in these disciplines.”
