Professor Andreas Willi elected as Fellow of The British Academy

We are delighted to announce that Professor Andreas Willi has been elected a Fellow of The British Academy. Professor Willi has been Diebold Professor of Comparative Philology since 2005. His work is an outstanding example of the synergy between linguistic theory and classical philology, covering many ancient Indo-European languages. He has worked extensively on sociolinguistic and dialectal variation in Greek, on language contact, and the language-literature-culture interface in the ancient world. His most recent monograph, Origins of the Greek Verb (Cambridge University Press, 2018), reflects his current interest in the history and prehistory of the Greek (and Indo-European) verbal system. Professor Willi was recently awarded the Forschungspreis der Alexander-von-Humboldt-Stiftung for his outstanding achievements in research and teaching.
