Council (Humanities and Social Sciences)

One member of Congregation elected by Congregation from members of the faculties in the Divisions of Humanities and of Social Sciences

Current/Retiring Member To hold office until
Dr S L Mapstone, St Hilda's MT 2017

The following nominations have been received:

Teresa Morgan, MA PhD Camb, MA Oxf, Fellow of Oriel, Faculty of Classics

Nominated by:

A K Bowman, Principal of Brasenose, Faculty of Classics
J Michie, President of Kellogg, Department for Continuing Education
D J Morris, Provost of Oriel
R M Ballaster, Mansfield, Faculty of English Language and Literature
K J Clarke, St Hilda's, Faculty of Classics
L M McDowell, St John's, Faculty of Anthropology and Geography
L A Roper, Oriel, Faculty of History
L A Whitehead, Nuffield, Faculty of Social Studies

Candidate statement:

Having acted as Assessor two years ago, I should value the opportunity to contribute further to the everyday governance of the University and discussions about the future. In addition to pursuing world-leading research and teaching, I am keen that we actively consider ways to exercise leadership in the sector and engage with public debate and government policy. I am particularly interested in issues of access and equality, and hope to explore, with colleges, divisions and the University's admissions offices, the scope for new web-based access initiatives which would have the potential to reach and inspire large numbers of prospective students.

The 'Idea of a University' project, which I ran as Assessor, generated some fascinating cross-disciplinary discussions about our intellectual and educational values and practices. Such discussions, I believe, inform our processes of governance as well as our teaching and research, and I hope to develop them further as a member of Council.


S J Whatmore, BA MPhil PhD Lond, MA Oxf, DSc Brist, Fellow of Keble, Faculty of Anthropology and Geography

Nominated by:

J Phillips, Warden of Keble
R W Ainsworth, Master of St Catherine's, Faculty of Engineering Science
A M S Prochaska, Principal of Somerville, Faculty of History
M J Banks, Wolfson, Faculty of Anthropology and Geography
A L Bogg, Hertford, Faculty of Law
T A O Endicott, Balliol, Faculty of Law
E J Frazer, New College, Faculties of Social Studies and of Philosophy
N Gooptu, St Antony's, Faculties of History, of Oriental Studies and of Social Studies
J D Maltby, Corpus Christi, Faculties of History and of Theology
P Tufano, Balliol, Faculty of Management

Candidate statement:

If I am elected to Council, my contribution there will draw on a combination of academic and administrative experience at departmental, divisional and university levels. Alongside my own research and research collaborations, I am actively involved in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students, in research supervision and in college and departmental life. I am currently Head of the School of Geography and the Environment in the Social Sciences Division and have served on various Divisional and University Committees and sub-committees, including Education, Personnel and Research. In these diverse roles, I have sought to advance the widening of student participation and the recognition of sometimes mutually unfamiliar conditions of academic work at Oxford, from those of college lecturers to departmental researchers, as well as the combination of college and departmental demands on those holding joint appointments.

The decisions made at Council have far-reaching impacts on all our working lives – from the distribution of resources to the collegiate University's responses to government policies. I am standing for election to participate in debating the range of pressing academic issues on which Oxford must continue to determine its own priorities and values within the context of a challenging external environment, nationally and globally.


Council (non-divisional)

Three members of Congregation, not necessarily being members of any division and not in any case being nominated in a divisional capacity, elected by Congregation

Current/Retiring Member To hold office until
Mr G I Henderson, Pembroke  MT 2014 
The Very Revd C A Lewis, Christ Church  MT 2016 
Dr S E Thomas, Balliol  MT 2017 

The following nominations have been received:

Tony Brett, MA Oxf, IT Services

Nominated by:

S J Lawson, IT Services
S J Robeson, IT Services
C M A Thomas, New College
J J Worth, Sub-faculty of Archaeology

Candidate statement:

  • Head of IT Support Staff services in IT Services (formerly OUCS), since 2003. 
  • Institute of Molecular Medicine IT Manager 1993–1998
  • Corpus Christi (Oxford) IT Manager 1998–2003

As a long-standing academic-related member of Congregation I offer the perspective of our institution's academic-related staff to Council if elected. With the increasing emergence of "third space"1 professionals in the higher education sector I believe I would bring strategic advantage to Council in contributing to governance that balances both the professional and academic needs of our world-leading institution promoting the advancement of the University's administration, and the management of its finances, services, and property.

I have a wide remit across the whole Collegiate University providing strategic direction to all units on ICT matters. I sit on divisional and departmental IT Committees and have conducted IT provision and process reviews in many departments, colleges and PPHs and the Proctors' office. I work with units to ensure their IT strategy is in line with, and driven by, their overall strategy and processes. I am responsible to around 650 IT Support Staff at every level of seniority in all parts of the Collegiate University of Oxford. As a member of Oxford City Council I offer a unique insight into the civic context of our University.

J-G Deutsch, MA Hannover, PhD London, Fellow of St Cross, Faculty of History

Nominated by:

M O MacMillan, Warden of St Antony's, Faculties of History and of Social Studies
M E P Jones, Master of St Cross
N C Bamforth, Queen's, Faculty of Law
S C Cooper, St Catherine's, Faculty of Physics
J G Darwin, Nuffield, Faculty of History
A S Goudie, St Cross
B Harriss-White, Wolfson, Faculty of Social Studies
D N J MacCulloch, St Cross, Faculties of History and of Theology
A R Mustapha, St Antony's, Faculty of Social Studies
J C L Tseng, St Edmund Hall, Faculty of Physics

Candidate statement:

Oxford shares with Cambridge the distinction of a Council that is responsible to Congregation, and to its members. Congregation has provided democratic procedures to come to decisions on complex problems. Most recently, members of the University have had occasion to be concerned with high profile developments, such as the building of student accommodation blocks near Port Meadow or the re-design of the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, both of which have generated considerable and controversial discussions.

It is in the wider context of such debates that I seek a place on Council. I had the opportunity to gain experience of University affairs as Senior Tutor of St Cross College (2004–2007). I served on University committees, including the Board of the Faculty of History. Council members must attend to matters of detail as well as to broader issues of policy. I shall draw on my experience in the University to meet these responsibilities.

The principles of transparency, 'open government', and democratic debate have served Congregation and the University well. They should be re-affirmed and strengthened where the need arises. The freedom for academics and students to conduct research and teaching without commercial, bureaucratic, or political interference and to publish their own research findings without hindrance are core academic values that we fail to protect at our peril. These freedoms need to be defended and advanced, both within the University and in wider public debate. These are the kind of discussions, to which as Council member I hope to make a useful contribution.


H R Dorkins, BM BCh MA Oxf, MSc Lond, Fellow of St Peter's, Faculty of Physiological Sciences

Nominated by:

R W Ainsworth, Master of St Catherine's, Faculty of Engineering Science
M D Damazer, Master of St Peter's
A M Buchan, Corpus Christi, Faculty of Clinical Medicine
M G Moloney, St Peter's, Faculty of Chemistry
A B Zavatsky, St Edmund Hall, Faculty of Engineering Science

Candidate statement:

Over the past decade, the University has enjoyed a period of remarkable growth – in student numbers, income and estate. Even if it were thought desirable, it is unlikely that continued growth at this rate could be sustained. In the next few years, we need to manage the move to a more steady state. We shall need to balance competing claims on limited resources.

Different pressures are faced by different divisions and each has developed its own strategies to tackle these. Many perceive the establishment of divisions as a success, but this structure brings its own problems, both within and between divisions. Further effort is needed to facilitate teaching and research across divisional boundaries.

Oxford undergraduates continue to benefit from an excellent education, but the experience of their postgraduate colleagues is more mixed. There is scope for improvement of what is offered at postgraduate level, particularly in taught courses. Colleges should continue have a central role in the work of the University. The growth in the number of postgraduates has generated further pressures on the colleges in terms of funding and accommodation. These considerations will be important in discussions on the future size and shape of the University.

As Senior Proctor in 2012/13, I have gained some understanding of the workings of Council and all of its major committees. I am a medical geneticist. I have been Fellow and Tutor in Medicine at St Peter's College since 1991 and Deputy Director of the University's graduate entry medical course since 2009.


James P Hall, BA Reading, IT Services

Nominated by:

C R Beadle, IT Services
S B Colling, IT Services
L C Covill, IT Services
S M Passmore, IT Services

Candidate statement:

The Business Analysis profession supports organisations through the process of change, whether from improvement initiatives from within or in response to changing external conditions and circumstances. This is achieved by asking the right questions in order to understand the drivers for change, drawing out appropriate objectives, constructing processes and solutions which enable the organisation to successfully respond to change and ensuring their successful integration into day-to-day operation.

Through supporting the University in the process of change as a Senior Business Analyst within IT Services (formerly Business Services and Projects) I have developed experience and understanding of the University's activity in the areas of Student Administration (OSS), undergraduate tutorial teaching (OxCORT) and research costing and pricing (X5). Through previous employement I have additional experience in student accommodation and legislative / regulatory compliance.

In addition to continuing to work within IT Services in developing processes and systems to support the University's information requirements, I would welcome the opportunity as a member of Council to utilise my analysis, solution definition and implementation skills and experience in support of the governance and strategy of the University.


Ashok I Handa, MB BS Lond, MA status Oxf, Fellow of St Catherine's, Faculty of Clinical Medicine

Nominated by:

R W Ainsworth, Master of St Catherine's, Faculty of Engineering Science
A M Buchan, Corpus Christi, Faculty of Clinical Medicine
S C Cooper, St Catherine's, Faculty of Physic
F C Hamdy, Balliol, Faculty of Clinical Medicine
C P Thompson, St Catherine's, Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages

Candidate statement:

I have been the Tutor in Surgery for the Medical Sciences Division for 12 years and am a practising Consultant Vascular Surgeon at the John Radcliffe Hospital. In mirroring the core activities of he University I am both responsible for organizing teaching and have a research profile with over 100 publications and cross disciplinary collaborations.

As Tutor for Graduates I am in touch with the challenges for Graduate students from both arts and science backgrounds and have supported the increase in scholarships. Through this I value the enrichment the collegiate university brings to academic excellence for students and scholars.

Having served on numerous University-wide committees and with significant management roles in the NHS both at the John Radcliffe Hospital and the Strategic Health Authority I would bring a creative perspective from a parallel public service.

If elected to council I would promote the symbiotic relationship between student and scholar in the pursuit of inspiration in teaching, learning and research.


Frances Lannon, MA DPhil Oxf, Principal of Lady Margaret Hall, Faculty of History

Nominated by:

P A Madden, Provost of Queen's, University Offices
T D Gardam, Principal of St Anne's, Faculty of English Language and Literature
S M Forbes, Principal of St Hilda's
N C Bamforth, Queen's, Faculty of Law
H Barr, Lady Margaret Hall, Faculty of English Language and Literature
A Braun, Lady Margaret Hall, Faculty of Law
S C Cooper, St Catherine's, Faculty of Physics
E J Smith, Hertford, Faculty of English Language and Literature
R F Sommers, Lady Margaret Hall
M F Spensley, Lady Margaret Hall, Faculty of Psychological Studies

Candidate statement:

I have been Principal of LMH since October 2002. In 2008–2011 I served as Deputy Chair and then Chair of Conference of Colleges, in which roles I was also a member of Council and several of Council's committees. Through these responsibilities in my own College, in Conference, on Council and on other university and intercollegiate bodies, I have gained a pretty broad understanding of the challenges facing Oxford. I have also learned that across the whole collegiate university we have exceptional opportunities to excel in teaching and research, and extraordinary resources to deploy wisely and develop energetically. I hope that I would bring to Council, if elected, a well-informed but undimmed commitment to seek collectively the most effective ways of furthering and communicating our shared mission at this particular moment of Oxford's history.


S P Q Rahtz, MA Oxf, MA Lond, IT Services

Nominated by:

D C De Roure, Wolfson, Oxford e-Research Centre
J R W Prag, Merton, Faculty of Classics
R A Taylor, Queen's, Faculty of Physics
A E Trefethen, St Cross, Faculty of Mathematics

Candidate statement:

I have worked for the University in IT Services (and before that in OUCS) since 1999. I am currently Director of Academic IT (Research), my main responsibility being to ensure that academics have the best possible IT infrastructure for research projects, get good advice on techniques and tools, and support in the active phase of the research life cycle. You will find me on the web, publishing widely in the areas of archaeological computing, text encoding, and open source software. Prior to Oxford, I worked in scientific publishing, as a field archaeologist, and as a computer science lecturer at Southampton University specializing in Humanities computing. I have degrees from Oxford (Merton College), in Classics and Modern Greek, and from UCL in Archaeology.

I am standing in this election in order to offer the perspective to Council of the large number of academic-related staff who support the research and teaching of the University, particularly in the application of IT. I stand firmly in the gap between administration and academia, and want to apply my experience, my understanding, and my vision for the digital revolution at the highest level of our institution. Much of my work is in the area of openness, be it open source software, open standards, open access to publications, or the application of open data to publications. I believe that the digital transformation of not just our research, but also our teaching, our governance, and our whole student experience, will be what distinguishes us from our competitors.


Chris Wickham, MA DPhil Oxf, Fellow of All Souls, Faculty of History

Nominated by:

J S Vickers, Warden of All Souls, Faculty of Social Studies
L Ashe, Worcester, Faculty of English Language and Literature
S R I Foot, Christ Church, Faculty of Theology
K J Humphries, All Souls, Faculty of History
R S R Mitter, St Cross, Faculties of History, of Oriental Studies and of Social Studies
S C West, Magdalen, Humanities Division

Candidate statement:

I am standing for Council because I wish to help maintain the continued success of Oxford University and its members during yet another period of major change in higher education, and I would welcome the opportunity to use my experience and knowledge of higher education nationally and internationally to help ensure that we make the right decisions about our strategy and future direction.

I have always wanted to help develop the highest standards of academic achievement possible, and I try to do so both through my individual research and by bringing on others inside and outside my discipline, in this country and abroad. I hold the History Faculty's Chichele Chair of Medieval History at All Souls, and, among other things, am chair of the History sub-panel for the 2014 REF. I am committed to humanising the challenges we all face, however menacing they seem.

I also have had experience of strategic planning, budgets and fundraising, most recently in my three years as Chair of the History Faculty Board. I would know what I was doing when dealing here, in this major area of concern for Council, and would use my critical sense constructively.

From an early stage in my career, I have been actively engaged in personnel issues, and had twenty years as an AUT (now UCU) case-worker; most recently, I have joined the University's Equality and Diversity committee. I believe strongly that it is possible both to manage the University strategically, and to help people improve their daily lives.

Curators of the University Libraries

One member of Congregation elected by Congregation

Current/Retiring Member To hold office until
Professor N E Cronk, St Edmund Hall MT 2017

The following nominations have been received:

David C De Roure, BSC PhD Southampton, Oxford e-Research Centre

Nominated by:

H Lee, President of Wolfson, Faculty of English Language and Literature
J Gibbons, Kellogg, Faculty of Computer Science
S P Q Rahtz, IT Services
R C Schroeder, Keble, Oxford Internet Institute

Candidate statement:

The University's major research libraries are a crucial part of the "knowledge infrastructure" that underpins our scholarship – the richness of the collections is part of this, but critically also the services, the skills of the staff and their understanding of our scholarly communities and practices. These essential functions of the library are as valuable today as ever, becoming increasingly important as our knowledge infrastructure becomes more pervasively digital – for example, the Libraries are already embracing new roles in the University's research data management landscape. More than digitised content, I believe that tomorrow's librarianship is about supporting new scholarly practices and digital research methods – these enable entirely new research to be conducted over, and contributed to, our growing archive. My own expertise is in multidisciplinary digital research practice, which comes from directing a research centre supporting digital methods in and across disciplines – the Oxford e-Research Centre is a "digital methods incubator" which innovates in technology supporting research and demonstrates the transformative potential of digital. A mathematician and scientist by training, I now research in Digital Humanities and have recently served as National Strategic Advisor for Digital Social Research; I hold national and European e-Infrastructure roles, and am a Research Fellow at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at Illinois (top US iSchool). I also enjoy close collaborations with Oxford's many innovators in scholarship, including Digital Humanities (through TORCH), the Oxford Internet Institute, citizen science in Astrophysics and Open Science, bringing comprehensive insights into our evolving scholarly practices and communications.


Simon V Hunt, MA DPhil Oxf, Faculty of Physiological Sciences

Nominated by:

C A R Boyd, Brasenose, Faculty of Physiological Sciences
S M Burge, Green Templeton, Faculty of Clinical Medicine
R D Evans, Keble, Faculties of Physiological Sciences and of Clinical Medicine
N Herring, Keble, Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics
D Jaksch, Keble, Faculty of Physics
P W Jeffreys, Keble, Office of the Director of IT
A Ptak-Danchak, Keble, Radcliffe Science Library
P A Robbins, Queen's, Faculty of Physiological Sciences
A P Rogers, Keble

Candidate statement:

The Bodleian, and the two components of it with which I became most familiar during my career here (the Radcliffe Science Library and the Cairns Library), are extra-ordinary libraries by any and all standards. I'm particularly keen to bring a user-centred view and a push to the further development of its digital infrastructure. I have read in the recent Curators' published minutes the summary of the 2012 Bodleian Reader Survey conducted by the LibQual-Lite instrument. It flagged up "Making electronic resources accessible from my home or office" to be in the Red band where perceived current levels of service fall below the minimum expected. As a critical friend I want to do my bit to help improve this.

I retired last year at the age of 67 from career-long posts as University Lecturer in the Dunn School of Pathology and Tutorial Fellow at Keble College. I am now once more a student here, studying for the Diploma in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education at the Learning Institute. So I am a user of the Bodleian Libraries, not only for my own research in Immunology, but also in my learning in Educational Studies. In my own teaching since 2000 I co-developed and taught, jointly with Radcliffe Library staff, modules in Information Retrieval and Critical Reading of the Literature for undergraduate Finalists and for 1st year graduates, emphasising access to digital resources. I received a Teaching Excellence Award for this. I was latterly Librarian of the Dunn School.


Lesley Smith, BSc MSc LSE, MA DPhil Oxf, Fellow of Harris Manchester, Faculty of History, Faculty of Social Studies

Nominated by:

R Waller, Principal of Harris Manchester, Faculty of Theology
N D Brown, Principal of Linacre, Faculty of Plant Sciences
H J Swift, St Hilda's, Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages
B R Ward-Perkins, Trinity, Faculty of History, Sub-faculty of Archaeology

Candidate statement:

I teach politics at Harris Manchester and also do some teaching for the History and Theology faculties; my research is in the area of medieval intellectual history. I am also Senior Tutor of my college.

The interdisciplinary nature of my work takes me to various parts of the Bodleian Libraries, but my research is highly dependent on their collections of unique manuscripts and early printed books. The Bodleian's Special Collections are my equivalent of a laboratory: without them, I could not do my work.

I see myself as a critical friend of the Library. Money is tight, and in that context it's inevitable that there are hard choices to be made. In some subjects, electronic provision to the desktop may be the only way forward; in others, packed reading rooms show the continuing central role of well-organized subject provision and library work space, in conjunction with digital materials. Knowledgeable, accessible staff remain irreplaceable.

Major developments, including the opening of the Weston Library, the reconsideration of the ROQ and the advent of electronic legal deposit make this a critical period in the history of the Bodleian. That is why I believe ordinary users need to take a constructive role in the oversight of the Libraries.


David Zeitlyn, MSc Lond, PhD Camb, MA DPhil Oxf, Faculty of Anthropology and Geography

Nominated by:

H Lee, President of Wolfson, Faculty of English Language and Literature
M J Banks, Wolfson, Faculty of Anthropology and Geography
D N Gellner, All Souls, Faculties of Anthropology and Geography and of Oriental Studies
I G Maclachlan, Merton, Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages

Candidate statement:

I have a long history of involvement as a researcher in the development of modern research libraries. In the late 1980s I was founding chair of the BIDS (now Jibs Users Group). I served for some years on the Libraries Board in the early 1990s since which time I have served on the ESRC Resources Board and more recently on various JISC committees and was involved in various activities of RIN (Research Information Network). This has given me a wider perspective to help approach some of the particularly idiosyncratic issues which Oxford must deal with. I am particularly interested in the controversies surrounding open publication and data archiving and management.
