Centenary Chair announced
Dr John Devaney has been appointed new Centenary Professor of Social Work at Edinburgh
It is with great pleasure I announce that we have appointed Dr John Devaney (currently Queens University Belfast) to the Centenary Chair in Social Work. John’s research and KEI interests lie in the areas of familial violence, the safeguarding of children from abuse and neglect, the development of child welfare policy, and the impact of childhood adversity across the life course. He is also a highly experienced teacher and academic leader, with strong links to practice and policy. John will join us on January 8 and will also take up the position of Head of Social Work from that date (for a three year term).
