Professor Xavier Costa-Guix Elected to Academia Europaea

 

Congratulations to Xavier Costa-Guix, professor in the School of Architecture, for being elected by the Academia Europaea as an independent member of Council. The Academia Europaea is a functioning European Academy of Humanities, Letters and Sciences, composed of individual members who collectively aim to promote learning, education and research.

“My previous experience in academic and institutional councils, such as the Aga Khan Foundation, International Union of Architects (UIA), UNESCO/Icomos/Docomomo Council of International Experts, and Northeastern University’s senior leadership council, will enable me to best contribute to the Academia,” explained Dr. Costa. “Additionally, my section and particularly my field of scholarship (history of architecture) would especially benefit from a greater representation in the Council.”
