Key dates, deadlines, and information you need to nominate a new Fellow

Each year, we welcome a new cohort of Fellows to the EA. Fellows are those who have made a special contribution to the English Association or to the field of English Studies more broadly.

Meet the 2020 Fellows

Who can nominate a new Fellow? Existing Fellows and members of the English Association's Board and sub-committees can make a nomination. You can't nominate someone who is currently at the same institution as you.

What makes a strong nomination? When you nominate a Fellow, you will need to provide a supporting statement which provides evidence in one or more of the following categories:

(a) Distinguished service to the English Association

(b) Distinguished service to English Studies, for example:

  • teaching
  • research
  • professional activity
  • creativity
  • collegiality and good citizenship, e.g. service on boards, committees, subject bodies, grant agencies, etc.

Are there any other eligibility criteria? Yes:

Nominees for Fellow must be based in the UK, Isle of Man, or the Channel Islands; be currently in employment

Nominees for Honorary Fellow must be based in the UK, Isle of Man, or the Channel Islands

Nominees for Emeritus Fellow must be based in the UK, Isle of Man, or the Channel Islands; be retired from employment

Nominees for Corresponding Fellow must be based outside the UK, Isle of Man, or the Channel Islands

When should I submit my nomination? You can submit a nomination at any time. They will be considered by the Fellowship Committee and ratified by the Board of Trustees at their next meeting (these meetings take place in March, May, and November). If the nomination is ratified, we will write to your nominee inviting them to become a Fellow. If the nomination is not ratified, we will not contact you or your nominee. New Fellows are formally announced at the AGM and Awards Ceremony in November each year.
