Welcome to your new look Humanities eNews!

(7 October 2016)

Welcome to the new look eNews, the first of our new weekly update summary that will be published every Friday. All the most popular features will remain, including the monthly ‘Message From’ the Dean and other senior members of staff, and the ‘Spotlight On’ section.  

You may have noticed that the news stories in eNews have already been shared on HumNet, to give you more timely access to the news. So you don’t need to wait for eNews to be published to view the recent news stories; instead eNews will give you a summary of the key stories from the week. It also contains links to all media coverage, rather than a selection. 

There will also be information and links to upcoming events you may be interested in, summarising events that have been added to the HumNet events page. And changes to the ‘Spotlight On’ feature means it can focus on keeping you up to date with current topics of interest, as well as finding out more about the people behind the stories, whether that’s an individual or a team. Watch out for the first Spotlight On in next week’s edition. 

How you can help

If you have a news story, some media coverage or an event you’d like to share, please continue to send the information to And remember, the information you send to the Humanities Internal Communications team via this email address may be used not only in eNews and on HumNet, but could also feed into the monthly DoFO CoreMunicate for PSS staff, to the Dean and DoFO CoreMunicate briefings for academic staff, or be used on the external website. We’ll also make sure that it gets passed on to anyone else who might be interested – relevant staff in Schools or elsewhere in the Faculty, or elsewhere in the University. Sharing with will ensure that your work and success stories are promoted across the widest range of channels.  

Don’t worry about whether or not it’s suitable, or how it’s written – we will advise on that.
