Professor Jonathan Gershuny awarded CBE
Posted: 19 Jun 2017

Professor Jonathan Gershuny, FBA, Professor of Economic Sociology, Co-Director of the Centre for Time Use Research in the Department of Sociology and Senior Research Fellow of Nuffield College, is appointed CBE for services to the social sciences and sociology in the Queen's Birthday Honours 2017.

His research, which focuses on how people spend their time, aims to provide new answers to pressing questions about the evolution of the balance between work and leisure and between paid and unpaid work, the implications of such changes for health and wellbeing, and how they vary by country, age, gender and possession of material resources. Professor Gershuny said: 'This award reflects a very long-term effort – I started this in 1977 – to collect nationally representative samples of diaries that I could use to estimate historical changes in work and leisure patterns across the world. I am really pleased that the Centre for Time Use Research in Oxford University's Sociology Department is now receiving this public recognition!'
