Homi Bhabha, Anne F. Rothenberg Professor of the Humanities, was elected an Honorary Student of Christ Church, Oxford University. The tradition of election of ‘distinguished persons’ to Honorary Studentships began in 1858.
Professor Homi Bhabha was also recently elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 2021.

This was no small feat, especially considering that all the teaching had to be done remotely!

Congratulations to Paul Chouchana for receiving a 2021 Star Prize in Concentration Advising.
"This year especially, striving to be a good adviser has meant striving to be present. Being present means letting my students surprise me, take the conversation where they want to take it, and occasionally find myself compelled to say things I never expected to."
You can read more about Paul's comments and about this prize on the APO website.
