It is with enormous pleasure Robinson College has learnt that Professor Judith Lieu has been elected as an International Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.  According to their website, the Academy recognizes the outstanding achievements of individuals in academia, the arts, business, government, and public affairs.  It also contains the following with regard to Academy Membership:

“One of the reasons to honor extraordinary achievement is because the pursuit of excellence is so often accompanied by disappointment and self-doubt,” said David W. Oxtoby, President of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. “We are pleased to recognize the excellence of our new members, celebrate their compelling accomplishments, and invite them to join the Academy and contribute to its work.”
