Dr Sue Dymoke has been granted a Fellowship of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.

The prestigious Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, commonly known as the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) have welcomed Dr Sue Dymoke, Reader in the University’s School of Education, into the select enlightenment organisation.

Founded in 1754, the RSA aims to promote creativity across industry and develop collaborative networks to formulate innovative new ideas and help society flourish. Fellows of the Royal Society are elected by a panel of existing fellows who consider the nominee’s merits, creativity and alignment with the society’s ambitions. Fellows are permitted to use the post-nominal letters ‘FRSA’ and Dr Sue Dymoke joins a select group of around 28,000 fellows globally, including Dame Judi Dench, Bob Dylan and Stephen Hawking; former fellows of the RSA include Karl Marx, Benjamin Franklin and Charles Dickens.

“I am extremely pleased about my unexpected and successful nomination” said Dr Sue Dymoke. “I am looking forward to contributing to the Society's creative and collaborative work through my poetry, my pedagogical research on poetry writing and teaching, and my work in teacher education.”
