Nine members of the Yale faculty who have made important contributions across a range of fields, including economics, medicine, African American studies, and linguistics, are among the nearly 270 accomplished individuals elected new members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Each year, the academy — an honorary society and independent policy organization with initiatives in the arts, democracy, education, global affairs, and science — elects new members in recognition of their notable achievements in academia, industry, policy, research, and science. The new members include more than 40 International Honorary Members from 23 countries.
“With the election of these members, the academy is honoring excellence, innovation, and leadership and recognizing a broad array of stellar accomplishments,” said David W. Oxtoby, president of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. “We hope every new member celebrates this achievement and joins our work advancing the common good.”
