Staff news December 2016

I am delighted to announce the final outcomes of this year’s promotions round which bestows great honour on our colleagues.

Christopher Marshall has been promoted to Associate Professor, and Ingrid Volkmer, Audrey Yue and Scott McQuire have been promoted to Professor.

This is a fantastic tribute to their scholarly work and research reputations, their contribution to the School in service and leadership across a range of roles, and their significant involvement in teaching and learning over many years. These Professor level are the only promotions in the Faculty this year, and so is a measure of quality achievement all round.

The news is also just to hand that Professor Ken Gelder has been appointed a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, as internationally renowned scholar whose work spans popular fiction, Australian literary studies and subcultural studies.

In addition, I would like to welcome Rachel Marsden to the School who has joined us in the position of a fixed term Lectureship in Art Curatorship.

Professor Rachel Fensham
