We are delighted to announce that Professor Russell Goulbourne has been appointed as the new Head of the School of Arts & Humanities, and will take over the role from Professor Simon Gaunt at the end of January 2014.

With an outstanding academic career to date, Professor Goulbourne joins King’s from the University of Leeds, where he is currently Professor of Early Modern French Literature. He has been associated with the University of Leeds for 13 years, joining in 2000 as a lecturer in French. He was subsequently the Head of Leeds’ French Department, the largest such department in the country.

A recognised authority on the work of Voltaire, Professor Goulbourne has published widely on 17th and 18th century French literature, with a particular focus on cultural exchange and the reception of classical antiquity in the period. His research has been funded by the AHRC, the British Academy and the MHRA. He is also an accomplished translator, having published translations of Diderot's The Nun and Rousseau's Reveries of the Solitary Walker in the Oxford World's Classics series. He is Co-Editor of French Studies, the quarterly journal of the Society for French Studies, and Secretary of the Association of University Professors and Heads of French.
