Ineke Sluiter appointed Corresponding Fellow British Academy
Ineke Sluiter, Professor of Greek Language and Literature, has been appointed Corresponding Fellow by the British Academy. Every year the Academy selects the best researchers from the humanities and social sciences in the UK as well as outside as Fellows.
A total of 66 academics were appointed as Fellows by this British academic organisation. Sluiter is one of the 24 new Corresponding Fellows who do not come from the United Kingdom and is one of the two to come from the Netherlands. The research areas of the new Fellows are very diverse: from feminist theory to the economic development of Africa and from Medieval history to Indian philosophy. The British Academy's aim with these apointments is to do justice to the increasing diversity in research in Great Britain.
Sluiter is Professor of Greek Language and Literature; her research focuses on how language, public debates and the use of value discourse were regarded in Antiquity, and on the connections between the Classical world and the modern world. As well as professor in Leiden, since 2012 Sluiter has also been a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW).
