Prof Stephen Whittle
A champion for the rights of transgender people, Prof Stephen Whittle (Gender Knowledge Cluster) has been granted the prestigious title of ‘Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences’ by a selection of his peers. This adds to a string of accolades for Prof Whittle including an OBE, honorary degree and Stonewall Award from the American Bar Association.
Speaking about the award, Stephen said:
I feel incredibly privileged to have been nominated and to be recognised as a Fellow by having contributed to the discipline. The work I did was on the border between law and social sciences but it’s been quite successful, so to be recognised by your peers as contributing to the social sciences is very heart-warming.
