Lorraine York and Mark Crowther new Fellows of Royal Society of Canada

Lorraine York, a professor of English and Cultural Studies and Mark Crowther, who holds a joint appointment in the departments of Medicine, and Pathology and Molecular Medicine, have been named new Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada.

Two McMaster faculty, one a preeminent scholar on the study of celebrity and culture, the other a renowned expert in the treatment and prevention of blood clot complications, are among the newest Fellows of the Royal Society of Canada, the country’s highest academic honour.

Lorraine York, a professor of English and Cultural Studies has been elected to the Academy of Arts and Humanities. Mark Crowther, who holds a joint appointment in the departments of Medicine, and Pathology and Molecular Medicine, and is also an associate of the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence and Impact, has been elected to the Academy of Science.

The Royal Society of Canada (RSC), which announced its 2017 fellows today, promotes Canadian research and scholarly excellence in the humanities and in the social and natural sciences.

“Induction into the RSC is an honour reserved for Canada’s best and brightest scholars and researchers,” says McMaster President Patrick Deane. “This accomplishment is a testament to the important contributions that these two exceptional researchers have made within their respective fields, and demonstrates the high esteem in which they are held by their peers. I congratulate them both on this significant achievement.”
