It feels odd to share good news when so many people are suffering, but it’s now official, I’m moving on from the University of Salford in July. Salford has been such a massive part of my life- over half in fact! Back in 1995, as an undergraduate Media and Performance student, I fell in love with the place and it’s people there and then. Since that time, I moved on to the FE sector and returned to my beloved old Adelphi Building as a lecturer in 2005 and have undertaken a number of roles since, most recently as Associate Dean in the shiny New Adelphi.
But new beginnings are beckoning and I’m delighted to be joining the new School of Digital Arts (SODA) at Manchester Metropolitan University as part of the leadership team looking after Knowledge Exchange and Business Development and as Reader in Screen Studies.
It’s been an immense privilege and pleasure to work with so many talented, dedicated people, many of whom are my dear friends and who will remain so.
