Mon, 29/07/2013

Dr Andy Orchard (1985, English) will step down as Provost of Trinity College, University of Toronto, to become the Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon this autumn. By taking the position of Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon Dr Orchard becomes the second Exonian to hold the post, following in the footsteps of JRR Tolkien. 

Dr Orchard has been Provost of Trinity College, University of Toronto, since 2007. We wish him luck in his new role and look forward to seeing him back in Oxford.
