Professor Catriona Seth an Associate Member of the Académie Royale de Belgique

We are happy to announce that Professor Catriona Seth (Fellow of the British Academy, Marshal Foch Professor of French Literature and Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford) was recently made an associate member of the Académie Royale de Belgique — Belgium’s National Academy, which was founded in 1772 under the aegis of Empress Maria Theresa.

On the occasion, Professor Seth was commended on her research, interdisciplinary approach to literary discourse, her work as an editor and as a specialist in Women’s Studies. The new title was seen as especially appropriate given the Academy’s background and Professor Seth’s expertise in literature and the history of ideas of the long 18th century.
