Professor Jonathan Gershuny awarded CBE

CTUR Director Professor Jonathan Gershuny has been awarded a CBE for services to the social sciences and sociology in the Queen's Birthday Honours 2017.

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!'
