MARSHALL NAMED DEAN OF HUMANITIES AND FINE ART

Wednesday, August 19, 1998 - 17:00
Santa Barbara, CA

David Marshall, professor of English and Comparative Literature at Northwestern University, has been named Dean of the Division of Humanities and Fine Arts at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

"Our world-renowned Division of Humanities and Fine Arts has long been a source of pride to the entire campus.

Under the leadership of Dr. Marshall, I am sure its stature will continue to thrive and will reach greater heights.

His experience, commitment, and vision will serve the campus well,"

said Chancellor Henry T. Yang.

Marshall received a bachelor's degree in 1975 at Cornell University and his Ph.D. in Comparative Literature at The John Hopkins University in 1979.

He served on the faculty at Yale University for 18 years as a teacher of English and Comparative Literature, Chair of the Department of English, and Director of the prestigious Whitney Humanities Center.

His numerous honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship and Yale's Morse Fellowship for Junior Faculty.

He joined Northwestern in 1997.

Marshall was a visiting scholar at UCSB's Interdisciplinary Humanities Center during the 1996-97 academic year.

"While at UCSB, I developed a keen sense of the diverse strengths of the humanities and fine arts," said Marshall.

"It will be a privilege to join this strong faculty as a colleague and I look forward to working with faculty, students, staff and administration as a divisional dean."

Marshall's academic work focuses on 18th-century fiction and aesthetics.

His numerous publications address moral philosophy, theories of art, the history of ideas and drama as well as English, French, and German literature of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.

He is presently at work on

a study of the status of art in 18th-century fiction and aesthetics.-

Executive Vice Chancellor Donald W. Crawford praised Marshall's appointment.

"I am confident that David Marshall, given his background and experience, will provide leadership for our traditional departments as well as for new academic initiatives in the humanities and fine arts."

Everett Zimmerman, Acting Provost of the College of Letters and Science, also hailed the appointment.

"David Marshall is a distinguished scholar with the broad interests that will enable him to be responsive to all aspects of the division.

His tenure will, I am convinced, be a time in which the humanities and fine arts will make significant gains."

At UCSB, the Division of Humanities and Fine Arts has more than 300 faculty members, 5,500 undergraduate students and approximately 555 graduate students.

Its departments and programs include Art Studio, Classics, Dramatic Art and Dance, East Asian Studies, English, Film Studies, French and Italian, German, Slavic and Semitic Studies, History of Art and Architecture, Linguistics, English, Music, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Spanish and Portuguese, and the Writing Program.

It is also the administrative home for the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center and the Humanities and Social Science Computing Facility.

Marshall's appointment is effective August 1.
