Professor Nash said: “I am very honoured to have been elected to The British Academy, and to add to the geographers and Queen Mary staff who are Fellows. This honour has already energised me in my ongoing and new research.”

Professor Alastair Owens, Head of School of Geography said: “This is an honour of great distinction reserved for leading national and international scholars in the humanities and social sciences on the basis of a stellar academic record. Catherine has been at Queen Mary for the last fifteen years and has pursued a range of very significant research projects on the cultural geographies of kinship, genealogy and relatedness; the spatial and cultural politics of the Irish borderlands; the cultural geographies of domestic pre-inhabitation; and, most recently, extending her work on relatedness, the entangled family histories of animals and people. Our warmest congratulations to Catherine on this much deserved recognition!”
