Here. I noted the range of proposed faculty firings the other day, but the full report reveals, amazingly, that, "A need has been identified to invest in a number of areas of strategic investment and growth through six new appointments for 2010-11 at a cost of £320,000" in such areas as "Culture and Identity" and "Digital and Visual Cultures." So senior faculty of great distinction are to be sacked, while new hires are to be made in other areas.
It is getting hard to escape the conclusion that malevolent intent by administrators lies behind these machinations. Why else destroy your university's strongest Humanities unit in order to invest more money in "Digital and Visual Cultures"?
