Alexandra Walsham CBE

In the recent Queen's Birthday Honours, Professor Alexandra Walsham (EHS President 2012-13) was made CBE, for services to history. A fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, Professor Walsham has been a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society since 1999 and was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 2009 and of the Australian Academy of the Humanities in 2013. "I am bewildered and humbled by this unexpected honour, which I am still struggling to take in," she commented. "I hope that I can endeavour to deserve it by providing further service to History in the coming years."
