SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The University of Iowa on Monday announced the appointment of the new director of the Division of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.

Russell Ganim, a professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, has accepted the position, according to a letter by Linda Maxson, the dean of the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The decision comes after a search headed by UI Professor Steve Duck that began in the fall of 2010.

“Professor Ganim brings to this important leadership position great energy, vision, and a record of administrative success at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln,” Maxson wrote.

The division encompasses all UI language departments; it was formed last fall as a way to save money in the departments.

Ganim’s appointment will begin in July. UI Professor Marc Armstrong is the division’s interim director.
