        Subject: Dr Øyvind Eide to Passau

Public congratulations are due to Dr ؘyvind 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 
Digital Humanities.

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 ؘyvind personally.

I also must add that if you are aware of other such stories you are 
welcome to post the news here.
