Arts and Humanities engage with the other person, be that people in the past, cultures in the present, shared experience through performance, imagining new realities through writing, or understanding how we think and how we can communicate more effectively.

He was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (FRSE) in 2013 and Fellow of the British Academy (FBA) in 2017.
