Professor Ayse Uskul secures Newton International Fellowship

Professor Ayse Uskul and Dr Mehmet Elgin have been awarded a £99,000 Newton International Fellowship by the British Academy. This fellowship was established to support the development and training of postdoctoral researchers at an early stage of their career from any country outside the UK, by providing an opportunity to work at a UK research institution for two years. During his fellowship (which started in February), Mehmet is working on a project titled ‘Offering and demanding collective apologies: a UK versus Turkey comparison’ in collaboration with Ayse.
