Fellows and Senior Members

The senior membership of Hughes Hall comprises a broad range of professional academics at all stages of their academic careers, from Research Fellows and Post-Doctoral Research Associates developing their research profiles, to established Professors directing world-class projects and departments.

Hughes Hall is also proud of its unique City Fellows scheme, which appoints Fellows who are active in the City of London and other areas of professional life to foster the College’s links to the UK business community and to enhance the professional range of the College’s senior membership.

As a group, the formal “Fellows” of the College form the Governing Body, the highest authority in the College – they are also the College’s charity trustees. However, the broader senior membership, made up of Honorary, Life, and Quondam Fellows, as well as Senior Members, Senior Associates, and Post-Doctoral Research Associates incorporates a wide range of scholars and professionals into the intellectual and communal life of the College. As a group, referred to collectively as the “senior membership”, these individuals represent the core academic, cultural and institutional leadership of the College community.

An important feature of collegiate life at Hughes is that students and the senior membership mix freely, with no separate provision at regular meals or in the use of the College’s recreational facilities. In a distinctive way, fostered by the egalitarian and mature atmosphere of the College, all members, whether student, Fellow or Senior Member, have opportunities to share interests and learn from one another in the relaxed interdisciplinary environment of the College.

Most of the College’s senior membership work in highly interdisciplinary ways, and have research interests that cross traditional boundaries and disciplines. This page provides summaries of their individual research, teaching, and professional activities.
