Dear all,

As some of you will know, I have recently stepped down as Head of the 
Department of Digital Humanities at King's College London and am 
returning to the University of Glasgow to be Professor of Digital 
Humanities in the School of Critical Studies.

I will be continuing at Glasgow my work as Theme Leader Fellow for the 
Arts and Humanities Research Council’s ‘Digital Transformations’ theme 
and am pleased that I will be able to focus more fully on this work 
which I find fascinating. The accident in which I broke my leg and 
subsequent mobility issues have forced me to reconsider my priorities, 
and I feel I need to focus in the future on developing the ideas 
emerging from the AHRC theme and on completing the many half-finished 
pieces of research I have accumulated over the years. I will miss my 
colleagues at King’s but am pleased to be reunited with my former 
colleagues and friends at Glasgow.

Professor Anna Reading of the Department of Cultural Media and Creative 
Industries at King’s College London has kindly agreed to act as interim 
Head of Department at King’s College London until a new appointment is 
made and Paul Spence has also generously agreed to act as Anna’s deputy 

My future contact details are as follows:
