Honours for Dundee academics

The work of academics from the University of Dundee has been recognised in the New Year's Honours list.

Chris Whatley, Professor of Scottish History and former Vice-Principal of the University of Dundee, was honoured for his services to Scottish history education, while Dilip Nathwani, Honorary Professor of Infection, was honoured for his services to the treatment of infectious diseases. Both were given the Order of the British Empire (OBE).

“I am delighted and it is great news for the University as well,” said Professor Whatley on the announcement of the OBE.

He has been Professor of Scottish History at the University since 1997 and was Vice-Principal and Head of the College of Arts and Social Sciences until last year. He headed the University’s Five Million Questions project around the Scottish independence referendum.
