Visiting Professor awarded Berlin Prize

The Centre for Socio-Legal Studies is delighted to announce that Visiting Professor Mark Fathi Massoud has been announced as a recipient of the Berlin Prize from the American Academy in Berlin.

The Berlin Prize is awarded annually to American or US-based scholars, writers, composers, and artists who represent the highest standards of excellence in their fields, from the humanities and social sciences to journalism, public policy, fiction, the visual arts, and music composition.

Chosen by an independent selection committee, the fellows pursue a wide array of scholarly and artistic projects. On hearing of the award, the Director of the Centre, Professor Linda Mulcahy said:

Mark is a great friend to the Oxford Centre which he visits on an annual basis, and a worthy recipient of this prize. His work on law and religion is well known to Law and Society scholars across the work.  We were very pleased to hear that he had been honoured in this way and look forward to celebrating with him.

The American Academy in Berlin is a private, nonpartisan, nonprofit institution of advanced scholarship dedicated to upholding the cultural, academic, and political ties between the United States and Germany.
