Professor M.Wynn Thomas

Professor M. Wynn Thomas is a leading academic in the field of English Literature and writes about Wales in English. He was also for many years chair of the Welsh Medium Education Committee at Swansea University and represented the university on national bodies. 

Arguably his most important contribution, however, was his chairmanship of a working party set up by the University of Wales in 2001 to consider future plans, and one of the working party’s main recommendations was that a PhD scholarship scheme should be set up to nurture a new generation of Welsh medium lecturers. Many of the young academics who were the product of that scheme (that continues within the Coleg) have now been appointed to lecturing posts through the Coleg’s Academic Staffing Scheme.
