The Karten Lecturer in English and History, Dr James Jordan, has received a Vice-Chancellor's teaching award

Dr. James Jordan, the Karten Lecturer in Jewish/non-Jewish relations, has been given the Vice-Chancellor’s award in recognition of his excellence in teaching and learning within the University and beyond. As part of his research-led teaching, James has organised a wide range of innovative and highly effective learning opportunities for students of Holocaust literature, film and television, including field trips to museums, meetings with Holocaust survivors, and student-led workshops in local schools on Holocaust testimony and representation. In 2011 and 2012, James also worked with the Outreach office on Holocaust Memorial Day events, which have involved dramatic performances by local schoolchildren and an exhibition with contributions from Southampton University English and History students.

James, who is currently writing a monograph on the role and representation of Jews on British television, receives an award of £1000 in recognition of his contributions. He is the fourth member of staff in English to receive this award since it was instituted in 2005.
