Director of iSLanDS elected to Academia Europaea
We are thrilled to share the exciting news that our director, Professor Ulrike Zeshan, has been elected to the Academia Europaea (Academy of Europe). This body is made up of scholars and scientists who collectively aim to promote research, education and learning. It has about 3,000 members, including leading experts from all academic disciplines: law; medicine; letters and humanities; and physical, social and biological sciences. Members are elected to the Academy through peer nomination and a rigorous evaluation process.
We are pleased that there is now more representation of sign language experts in this Academy.
Many congratulations to Ulrike from the staff, students, associates and friends of iSLanDS for this outstanding achievement.
