Professor Nigel McLoughlin
12th November 2011
Warmest congratulations to Nigel McLoughlin who this month has received the title of Professor. The title was conferred on him in recognition of his professional standing, his achievements in teaching, and his research excellence. I’ve been privileged to know Nigel as a teacher and a colleague, and I’m delighted his contributions to the national and international study of creativity and poetics, and his exceptional contributions to the University of Gloucestershire, have been recognised with the conference of this title.
However, that’s enough flattery. Truth is, maintaining Nigel’s bio is an absolute pain in the a@#e: the blasted thing needs updated quicker than I can type. For example, it seems like only the other day that he was awarded a National Teaching Fellowship. Professor, might I perhaps request that you desist from further achievements, at least until after Christmas?
