The generosity of Old Members has been of fundamental importance to the study of History at Lincoln. In particular, recent support for the Langford and Darby Fellowships has provided much-needed continuity in tutorial provision, which remains an essential prerequisite for the academic development and welfare of students within college.
Dr Perry Gauci, V.H.H. Green Fellow, Tutorial Fellow in History
Lincoln teaches a relatively small number of subjects in order to provide strength in depth to our students and to ensure that our Fellows can continue to pursue their own research. In most cases this means that we have two full-time, tenured Fellows per subject, and one career development Fellow.
History is one of the larger schools at Lincoln, and is also offered as a joint school with politics or modern languages. Past fundraising success means that two of the three posts are endowed: the V.H.H.Green Fellowship is held by Dr Perry Gauci, and Professor Lucy Wooding was appointed to the Langford Fellowship following the retirement of Dr Susan Brigden. The third teaching post is a Darby Fellowship (a five-year career development post), currently held by Dr Sam Brewitt-Taylor.
Successes: We are grateful for a generous gift from the estate of Kenneth Sears ’45 which has taken us closer to our goal of £1.5m, which would fully endow the Darby Fellowship (career development) in history.
