Shana Kelley is elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Shana Kelley has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious honorary societies.

The academy was founded in 1780 by John Adams, James Bowdoin and others who believed the new republic should honor exceptionally accomplished individuals and engage them in advancing the public good.

The academy’s dual mission remains essentially the same 240 years later with honorees from increasingly diverse fields and with the work now focused on the arts and humanities, democracy and justice, education, global affairs and science.
