Professor Sandra Torres, Department of Sociology, has been elected to The Royal Society of Sciences, Sweden’s oldest learned society, founded in 1710 . The Society consists of 130 Swedish and 100 foreign members, divided into four classes: Physical-Mathematical, Biology-Medicine, History-Archaeology, and Engineering-Economy (including Social Sciences).
A core part of The Royal Society of Sciences' activities today is to award prizes to primarily young scholars, delivered once a year at a public ceremony. Through a broad age distribution among its members, the society also forms an important bridge across generations.
