Celebrating Jane

  2. Professor Jane Moody, Director of the Humanities Research Centre and Professor of English at the University of York, died in October 2011. An inspiring advocate of engaged universities and unflagging supporter of postgraduates, Jane’s legacy has been, and will continue to be, profound. Here, Sarah Pett captures some of the many tributes to Jane…
  3. Jane’s legacy has taken off with characteristic energy, with the setting up of a fund to support PhD students in their writing up year. It’s extremely touching to see how Jane will continue to change students’ lives – surviving financially in the final stages of a PhD is extremely difficult, and the assistance that this fund offers will be transformative.

  7. And not to forget her many other talents, including baking – an early memory of the BSB has to be the inaugural Cake Thursday, when Jane produced her clementine cake and significantly raised the game for all of us who were planning to contribute. There have even been rumours that the Treehouse blog was set up specifically to share cake recipes…

    My thoughts are with Jane Moody’s family, friends and colleagues on her memorial day at York today. A fine scholar and a special person!

    Yesterday’s celebration of the life of Prof Jane Moody @UniOfYork was perfect. Lively debate on the humanities, personal memories, cake.

  23. The centrepiece of the day was a debate on the public value of the humanities, an issue close to Jane’s heart. Miles Taylor, Sally Shuttleworth and Peter Holland’s contributions were entertaining and thought-provoking, and the debate has already begun its afterlife in social media: look out for the hashtags #celebrating jane and #whythehumanities

    @ruth_mather I thought Clare McDonald’s question/comment really hit the nail on the head….kind of wish she’d had time to say more

    @essiepett I agree, perhaps we could open it up for discussion on here?

    So, Twitter, how has working in the arts and humanities (or academia more widely) changed YOUR life?

    @ruth_mather I think Jane showed me that academia and the wider world are not, and should not be mutually exclusive domains.

    @ruth_mather In other words, I don’t know what ‘work’ is and what ‘play’ is any more.

    @ruth_mather Yes! Fed up with the argument that arts and humanities are self-evidently useful…. contd

  36. Jane’s legacy speaks for itself. For those of you who weren’t fortunate enough to know and work with Jane, though, here’s a glimpse of an academic superstar in action:
