Professor Newman, from the School of American and Canadian Studies, receives an OBE for her services to scholarship. Keith Hamill (Politics 1974), who served on the University’s governing body for 28 years, has been awarded an OBE for services to business and higher education. Emeritus Professor, Conor Duggan, has been honoured with an OBE for his services to forensic mental health.

Keith Hamill, who was President of Council for eight years from 2003, graduated from The University of Nottingham in 1974 in politics. During his extensive career he has been Chairman of Travelodge, the airline Go, and Moss Bros. He has been a Non-Executive Director of Samsonite, Electrocomponents and easyJet.

Professor Duggan, whose medical career spans three decades, is a respected academic in the field of forensic mental health as a researcher and teacher. His research interests are treatment efficacy in personality disordered offenders, their long-term course and the neuropsychological basis of psychopathy.

Professor Newman is currently working on a new book about utopian images in a post 9/11 world.

Professor David Greenaway, the University’s Vice-Chancellor, said: “We would like to congratulate all three of our colleagues who receive Birthday Honours in this, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year. We are proud of their achievements and thank them for the diverse contribution they have made to the success of our University.”
