A MESSAGE FROM THE PROVOST:

Dear members of the McGill community,
I am pleased to announce that Professor Hudson Meadwell has agreed to
serve as the Interim Dean of the Faculty of Arts starting 1 May 2015.
He will be stepping in to replace Professor Christopher Manfredi who will be
stepping down as Dean of the Faculty of Arts on 30 April, in
anticipation of assuming the role of Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) on 1 July.
Hudson Meadwell joined McGill University as an Assistant Professor in
the Department of Political Science in 1988, and is currently
completing his third term as Chair of the Department of Political
Science. He has also served the Faculty of Arts as an Associate Dean
(Research) and the University as an Associate Provost (Academic Staff).
In addition to these administrative positions, he has been a member of
many University level and inter-University committees. Professor
Meadwell's research interests include Nations and Nationalism,
European Political Development, Political Methodology and Philosophy
of Social Science. He has conducted field research and held visiting
appointments in Europe and North America. He has supervised 10 PhD
students and more than 50 MA students at McGill.
I thank Professor Meadwell for agreeing to lead the Faculty while Professor
Manfredi chairs the advisory committee search for a new, permanent Dean.
I am confident that the Faculty of Arts will continue to thrive under
Professor Meadwell's stewardship. Please join me in welcoming Hudson to
his role as Interim Dean of the Faculty of Arts.
Professor Anthony C. Masi
