Professor Martin McLaughlin Wins Serena Medal for Italian Literature

We are delighted to announce that The British Academy has awarded the Serena Medal for Italian Literature to Professor Martin McLaughlin.

This award recognises his ‘leading contribution to Italian studies, particularly Italian Renaissance humanism and literature’. The Medal was endowed by Mr Arthur Serena following Great Britain’s alliance with Italy in the First World War. It is given annually for ‘eminent services towards the furtherance of the study of Italian history, literature, art and economics’. Previous winners of the Serena medal include two predecessors in the Oxford Chair, John Woodhouse and Cecil Grayson. Other winners include Benedetto Croce, Bernard Berenson and Denis Mack Smith.
