Prof. Faroqhi Elected 2022 Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy
Prof. Suraiya Faroqhi has been elected as a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy for the year 2022, under the "Early Modern History to 1850" category.

The British Academy, established in 1902, is the United Kingdom's national academy for the humanities and the social sciences that gathers over 1700 scholars leading research in the various social sciences and humanities under its umbrella.

Fellowship at the reputable research society of the British Academy is accepted as the highest level of distinction for scholars with outstanding impact in their research fields.

With her specialization in social history with a focus on the early modern Ottoman Empire (the 1500s to early 1800s), Faroqhi was elected among twenty scholars this year, as a Corresponding Fellow; a category dedicated to scholars residing outside the UK.

The website of the British Academy introduced Prof. Faroqhi in reference to her works concerning the history of "Istanbul and the towns of Anatolia; comparative history, using Ottoman archival records to analyze their social positions, the conditions under which they worked, and the products of their labor."
