Warden to become President of the Academy of Social Sciences

24 October 2019

Professor Roger Goodman, our Warden, will become President of the Academy of Social Sciences in December 2019. It was determined that the role of the President and the Chair should be combined at the annual 2018 meeting of the Academy’s 1350 Fellows and 44 Learned Societies. This means that the President will chair the meetings and proceedings of the Academy, as well as acting as its representative and figurehead. Professor Goodman, who has been Chair of the Academy’s Council since 2015, will be the first President of the Academy to fill this integrated role, with his term lasting until June 2021.
