Dear Willard,

In addition to the ideas already put forward, I think that such a department
should also have a Chair in the 'Public Communication of Science (i.e.
Wissenschaft) and Technology'. Ideally, the post holder would discuss and
explain DH research to the general public and to other members of the
Academy with different disciplinary backgrounds. Such a post would be
relevant to my dream DH department because, inter alia, it could make a real
contribution to helping us imagine and explore new kinds of projects and
partnerships, both within and outside the Academy. It is also important in
the context of the difficulties Humanities is facing in many parts of the

All the best,
