Professor Antonella Sorace has been elected Fellow of the world's largest multidisciplinary scientific society.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is a leading publisher of cutting-edge research through its Science family of journals. The AAAS has individual members in more than 91 countries around the globe with the mission of advancing science, engineering, and innovation throughout the world for the benefit of all.

Each year, the Council elects members whose “efforts on behalf of the advancement of science, or its applications, are scientifically or socially distinguished.”

Professor Sorace’s election is in recognition of her contributions to the science of multilingualism, and for creating a scalable global model for bringing the science of multilingualism to public and policy spheres.

Professor Antonella Sorace said: “I am delighted to receive this honour from AAAS, which not only recognises the value of research on multilingualism but also highlights the ongoing importance of making research accessible to society.”

Professor Sorace’s fellowship will be made official at a Gala celebrating the 150th anniversary of the AAAS Fellows program this September at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.
