It gives me enormous pleasure to announce that Bettina Bradbury and Adrian Shubert have been elected Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada.
I am pleased to share the citation composed by the Royal Society of Canada
The Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada have elected 84 new Fellows, including one Foreign Fellow, and one Honorary Fellow. The newly elected Fellows have diverse backgrounds and disciplines. They have been elected by their peers in recognition of outstanding scholarly, scientific and artistic achievement. Election to the academies of the Royal Society of Canada is the highest honour a scholar can achieve in the Arts, Humanities and Sciences.
BRADBURY, Bettina – Department of History, York University
Bradbury’s original contributions to feminist and family history in Canada and beyond have enriched those fields while making critical interventions in urban, legal, political and colonial history. Her award-winning books have deployed feminist analyses, quantitative and qualitative methods, and a rich range of primary sources to locate women and families at the heart of the industrial revolution, nineteenth century marriage and widowhood, and English and French uses of family law.
SHUBERT, Adrian – Department of History, York University
Known for pioneering new topics in Spanish history, Professor Adrian Shubert’s innovative interpretations of the country’s 19th and 20th centuries have produced a new paradigm, replacing arguments about Spanish exceptionalism and failure with one that emphasizes its full participation in a broader European pattern. His monographs and synthetic works, published in Spanish as well as in English, are recognized in Spain and around the world as ground breaking.
