Professor Das appointed Oxford University Press Literary Delegate
Professor Nandini Das, Tutorial Fellow in English, has been appointed as a Literary Delegate for Oxford University Press.
The Delegates meet fortnightly during academic term-time under the chairmanship of the Vice-Chancellor. They are actively involved in the publishing programme; all proposals are referred to them for approval, and individual Delegates maintain a dialogue with editors in their specialist subject areas.
Professor Das commented that she was ‘delighted by the opportunity to work with Oxford University Press’ and that she ‘anticipates the significant responsibility of the role with considerable excitement.’
The appointment marks the end of an exciting year for Professor Das, in which she has appeared in numerous BBC documentaries and radio programmes including The Boleyns: A Scandalous Family, directed the TIDE salon and been the first person of colour to be appointed as Vice President of the Hakluyt Society.
