Professor Thomas E. A. Dale, the Simona and Jerome Chazen Distinguished Chair of Art History, has been elected to the Medieval Academy of America‘s Fellows Class of 2023. A prestigious honor, fellows are nominated by their colleagues within the medieval studies community. As stated by the MAA’s website: “The chief purpose of the Fellowship is to honor major long-term scholarly achievement within the field of Medieval Studies. Election to the Fellows is a gift bestowed by one’s colleagues. But in return, Fellows do what they can to ensure the continued vitality of Medieval Studies. They do this not simply by advancing their individual scholarship, but also by participating in the affairs of the Academy, electing new members to the Fellows in ways that reflect the diversity and range of Medieval Studies, lending their expertise when called upon to do so, and making donations to the Fellows’ Fund above and beyond the cost of membership dues to the Academy. By raising the profile of distinguished medievalists, the Fellowship in turn raises the profile of our profession at a time when the study of the Middle Ages cannot be taken for granted.”Congratulations Prof. Dale on this well-deserved achievement!
