Cook Elected Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy

Michael A. Cook, Class of 1943 University Professor of Near Eastern Studies, was elected a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy this past summer. Cook’s research has focused on the history of the Islamic world, the formation and development of traditional Islamic thought and its implications in the modern world, and Islamic history in comparative perspective. “Corresponding Fellows are scholars outside the UK who have 'attained high international standing in any of the branches of study which it is the object of the Academy to promote'.”
