Professor Andrew Le Sueur, Head of our School of Law, has been appointed as Executive Dean for our Faculty of Humanities and will start his new role on 14 August.

Professor Le Sueur said: “I am excited to be appointed Executive Dean for the Humanities and I am looking forward to getting to know colleagues in the wide variety of departments and research centres that make up the Faculty.

“The humanities and arts are about understanding human culture. Our graduates develop a deep understanding of the world and are equipped with a wide range of skills to succeed in their future careers.

“Our Faculty is well placed to continue at the forefront of several areas, including digital humanities where we work closely with our Eastern ARC partners.”

“Andrew is an eminent Professor of Constitutional Justice and he is equally committed to excellence in education and research and ensuring that Essex continues to offer a transformational education experience to all our students. I am absolutely delighted that Andrew will take up the post of Executive Dean of Humanities in August and we very much look forward to the contribution he will make at an exciting time in our University's history.”
