The School of Culture and Society will have two new Deputy Heads of School within the areas of Research and Staff and Communication. The newly appointed Deputy Heads of School are two experienced researchers within their respective fields of study with considerable managerial experience who will now also be actively involved in the management work at the School in the future.  

On 1st November 2020 Andreas Roepstorff will take up the position as Deputy Head of School for Research at School of Culture and Society.

The Research conducted at CAS is fantastic. It touches on the past, the present and the future, nature and culture, big and small. In recent years, the research area has been expanded, among other things because of grants from other funds than the Danish Council for independent Research and the ' classic ' humanities foundations. The competencies we have at CAS are particularly relevant in relation to a number of complex problems that require interdisciplinary approaches. As Deputy Head of School for Research, I hope to be able to contribute to supporting new initiatives and investments, preferably across departments and centres. I'm proud to become part of the school management team and I'm looking forward to getting started, "says Andreas Roepstorff.

Andreas Roepstorff will continue his work as Head of the Interacting Minds Centre.

Marie Vejrup Nielsen is appointed Deputy Head of School for Staff and Communication.
