The Trinity Long Room Hub’s governance bodies help the Institute to identify and act on emerging trends and opportunities, along with risks that may affect future activities and operations. They also help monitor our performance to ensure a strategic fit with our mission and resources. 

The Institute is led by a senior academic competitively appointed from our partnering Schools for five-year periods and a permanent executive director.

The current Director is Professor Eve Patten from the School of English. Previous Directors include Professor Jane Ohlmeyer, School of Histories and Humanities (2015-2020); Professor Juergen Barkhoff, School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies (2012-15); and Professor Poul Holm, School of Histories and Humanities (2008-12). 

Dr Caitriona Curtis has been executive director since 2012. Professor Jennifer Edmond was executive director 2008-12.
