Wes Williams

Wes Williams, Professor of French Literature and Tutor in Modern Languages, has been appointed the new Director of TORCH for three years.

Wes has been involved in TORCH related activities for many years, including his Knowledge Exchange Fellowship and before taking on the role of TORCH Director, he was Knowledge Exchange Champion of the Humanities at Oxford. He brings with him a wealth of experience in many areas, and a long-standing interest in fostering cultural collaborations and exchanges that amplify, diversify, and transform our collective intellectual and social resources

Professor Wes Williams commented:

I have been involved in TORCH-related activities for some time (see for instance the Storming Utopia project) but this is a new adventure, heading up the University’s newly instituted Humanities Cultural Programme. I hope in my time as Director to be able to both generate and curate a wide range of cultural collaborations and exchanges that amplify, diversify, and transform our collective intellectual and social resources. I would be delighted to hear from any members of SEH, past or present, who have ideas or contributions to make to this project.

Please email Wes at wes.williams@seh.ox.ac.uk.

The Hall wishes Wes many congratulations and every success in his new role.
