Congratulations to two professors in the Faculty of Arts who are among the Royal Society of Canada’s Class of 2020. Professor Imre Szeman (Communication Arts) has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (RSC), one of Canada’s most distinguished scholarly honours. Professor Jay Dolmage (English) has been named to the RSC’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists, representing top mid-career leaders in Canada. Here are the RSC citations.

Imre Szeman

Imre Szeman is an internationally-acclaimed cultural theorist. His landmark research establishes the shaping influence of fossil-fuel dependency on modern society. Szeman’s work propelled a new discipline—‘energy humanities’—which grapples with the cultural transformations required for a global shift to sustainable and renewable forms of energy. A highly collaborative, interdisciplinary and public-facing scholar, he is the co-founder of the Petrocultures Research Group and numerous initiatives advocating for energy transition.

Fellows of the RSC are elected by their peers for their outstanding scholarly, scientific and artistic achievement.
