Subject: Dr Øyvind Eide to Passau
Public congratulations are due to Dr Øyvind Eide for his appointment to
the position of "Lecturer and research associate" (with the rank of
'Akademischer Rat') at Universität Passau. Dr Eide completed his PhD at
the Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London, late last
year, with a highly regarded dissertation entitled "The area told as a
story: An inquiry into the relationship between verbal and map-based
expressions of geographical information". He joins Team DH at Passau under
the direction of Prof. Dr. Malte Rehbein; see
http://www.phil.uni-passau.de/rehbein for details.
Also joining the team in Passau are Gábor Mihály Tóth, who is currently
finishing his PhD in history at Oxford University, and PhD students in
Ordinarily, of course, someone gaining an academic appointment shortly
after completing the doctorate would not be remarkable. But digital
humanities is new as a fully academic discipline, so celebrations are in
order even by those who do not know Øyvind personally.
I also must add that if you are aware of other such stories you are
welcome to post the news here.
