        Subject: News from King's College London

Dear Willard,

We have recently had some discussion on Humanist about the good news in
terms of job openings in the digital humanities, so its perhaps
appropriate to report news about improvements in contracts and career
prospects for existing staff in a digital humanities unit. Like many
digital humanities outfits, one of the long-term problems in the
Department of Digital Humanities at King's College London has been
restricted opportunities to move into academic streams and a reliance on
short-term contracts with resulting insecurities. With the support of the
School of Arts and Humanities, a major restructuring of contracts has
taken place within the Department of Digital Humanities that has enabled
staff to choose between academic, research and developer career paths. A
number of staff have been offered long-term contracts and others have been
promoted. I append the new staff list below. I am sure that you will want
to join me in congratulating John Bradley, Paul Spence, Peter Stokes and
Paul Vetch on their promotion to Senior Lecturer. Much of the groundwork
for this restructuring was laid before I joined the Department, and the
restructuring was very much a team effort, but I nevertheless think that
the Department (and digital humanities more widely) owes a debt of
gratitude to Paul Spence as Acting Head of Department for his work in
pushing through this restructuring.
