David Theo Goldberg Announces Departure from UCHRI

UCHRI would like to share the news that David Theo Goldberg, Director of UCHRI since 2000, has informed the University of California that AY 2020-21 will be his last as UCHRI Director. Director Goldberg will continue to serve as faculty in Comparative Literature and Anthropology at UC Irvine. In the coming academic year he plans to take his first sabbatical since arriving at the University of California.

UC Provost and Executive Vice President Michael Brown and UC Irvine Interim Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Hal Stern will partner in a search for a new Director for the UCHRI.  Both have noted the importance of continuing UC’s leadership in innovative humanities research built on a strong multi-campus network.
