We are delighted to announce that our department chair, John Kloppenborg, has just been named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.
The Royal Society, founded in 1883, is Canada’s national honour society. It is modelled after the British Academy and l’Academie francaise. Royal Society fellows are among the most distinguished Canadian scholars and artists, and the process of nomination and election involves a rigorous vetting of candidates. As our chair, John’s election to the Royal Society is an honour in which we his colleagues and friends all happily share.
