Faces of the Faculty #8, 21.12.11

Ciara Murray

Thanks to all the staff members who have taken part so far in ‘Faces of the Faculty’, it was great to have your involvement and to find out more about you. I know the students have enjoyed reading your words of wisdom and discovering things they didn’t know about the people they encounter on a regular basis! For now, this is the last of the features, unless any other staff members wish to take part! It would be great to be able to continue this column; if you have not been in touch yet but would like to be involved, just get in touch on zest.editor@gmail.com. Happy Christmas to the English Faculty and its students; see you again next year! And now, let’s hear from Shane Walshe…

Well boys and girls, I had thought that this would be the last of the Faces of the Faculty interviews, but wait! Two staff members very kindly took the time to respond despite the busyness of the end of term…So we shall have not one but two features this week! Let’s roll with the first, with Adrian Rainbow. (David Matley, if you’re watching: them’s fightin’ words, wouldn’t you say?) 😉

This week I have a bumper edition of faculty faces; a literature and a linguistic double-whammy – which seems only appropriate for the ES! Today, representing the Literature corner, we have Christina Ljungberg, and Daniel Schreier batting for team Linguistics. And after that poorly executed sporting metaphor, let’s get on with the show!

Next week will potentially be the final staff interview… However, I will also be posting a poll to find out which member of the ES you would most like to hear from (I have picked a small selection). So, don’t forget to vote for your favourite. In the meantime, if you have any special requests for who should be on the list, post them in the comments field below!
Now, without further ado, we will continue the series this week with Andreas Jucker.

Towards the end of term I will be posting a poll here to see who of the remaining staff at the ES you would most like to see respond to these questions (and then hopefully convince the staff member to do so!) So start thinking about your choice… But now, presenting the third of our ‘Faces of the Faculty’ interviews: Marianne Hundt.

This week, continuing the series of interviews with staff members at the ES, Barbara Straumann shares her thoughts.
(Students, if you would like to see an interview with a particular professor, please encourage them to reply to the email I have sent. It would be great to have as many staff members as possible involved.)

Thank you to those who have taken the time so far, it is much appreciated!
