All change…

The School of Media, Art and Design is no more! Academic Board approved a new structure yesterday. We’re reorganising into three smaller Divisions: Journalism and Communications, Media and Television, Art and Design. We’ll come under an umbrella Executive with Performing Arts and English.

Restructuring can be a bad idea when it’s a substitute for doing stuff but I do think this makes sense. Greater coherence and focus and more manageable. Loads more questions than answers at this stage but I think the sun is shining a little brighter today – or it would be if it wasn’t raining.

We’ll see how it all plays out…

    The placement of Media Performance in Journalism and Communication is the odd one for me. But apart from that…

    The danger is of course a dvide-and-rule scenario, which really demands we all do work together collaboratively (in all senses?). Frequent meetings between the three Luton-based divisions (and Perfomring Arts and English, perhaps a little less frquently at first) where we actually talk seriously about the issues facing us, would be a start.

    Onwards and sIdeways!
