Over the past few years my colleagues and I have been working alongside UCL and the Faculty of Social and Historical Sciences on an approved expansion strategy. We have now completed the first phase of this, substantially increasing our undergraduate recruitment and appointing new members of the permanent academic staff to keep up with increasing teaching demands. I am delighted to announce that the following members of staff have been appointed and will take up permanent posts in the department this September:
Dr Lily Chang
Lecturer in the History of Early Modern and Modern China
Dr Chang joins us from the University of Cambridge where she is currently Henry Lumley Research Fellow at Magdalene College and a Research Associate in the Centre for History and Economics
Dr Tim Gibbs
Lecturer in the History of Early Modern and Modern Africa
Dr Gibbs will also be joining the department from the University of Cambridge, where he is currently a Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College.
Dr Alex Goodall
Senior Lecturer in International History (US and the World)
Dr Goodall comes to UCL from the University of York, where he is currently Lecturer in Modern History. He recently published a monograph entitled Loyalty and Liberty: American Countersubversion From World War One to the McCarthy Era.
Dr Jagjeet Lally
Lecturer in the History of Early Modern and Modern India
Dr Lally joins us from the University of Cambridge, where he is currently Moses and Mary Finley Research Fellow in History at Darwin College.
These posts were created to enable the department to expand its expertise geographically, to improve our coverage of Africa and Asia. Next year we expect further appointments will be made for additional colleagues to join us in September 2015.
Furthermore we have one new permanent non-academic appointment to announce:
Ms Cari Tuhey
Department Tutor (Transition and Welfare)
Cari Tuhey is currently head of history at the Bethnal Green Academy, and before embarking on a teaching career she held the post of Undergraduate Administrator in this department. Cari’s experience as a teacher and her contacts in the London teaching world will be helpful in our efforts both to recruit more students and to help them make the transition from school to university as smoothly as possible.
Professor Stephen Conway
Head of History
