From The Netherlands:
The professor of media studies, José van Dijck, has been appointed president of the Royal Academy of Sciences, the Academy. Van Dijck follows Hans Clevers on.
Van Dyck is a representative of the humanities again headed the association of outstanding scientists. The appointment of the Academy Clevers had previously broken with the tradition that the presidency rotates between social sciences, humanities and natural sciences. Clevers well as its predecessor Robbert Dijkgraaf are scientists. (Google Translate)
It is the first time that a woman in charge is at the Academy.
O’Leary for News, an arts grad and double X, is going to sit this one out.
But the rest of you, please, readers, your thoughts!
