Her appointment took effect Feb. 1, said Ann Ardis, interim deputy dean and associate dean of the humanities for the college and IHRC director.

The mission of the center is to strengthen faculty research and creative activity, enhance its visibility as well as its vertical integration in the curriculum, support initiatives involving multidisciplinary research and educational teams both within the University and with external partners, and foster intellectual community and public engagement.

“I look forward to working with Dr. Tomlinson and hope that her administrative appointment with the Interdisciplinary Humanities Research Center will be of as much benefit to the University Museums as it is to the College of Arts and Sciences,” Ardis said.
