Condolences for Jacqueline Hill

We are saddened to learn of the death of Jacqueline Hill (née Marchand) on 28 April this year, at the age of 89. With her husband John, she was a founder of the original University of Kent Language Centre from 1966. She taught French language within what was initially the Institute of Language and Linguistics (ILL) and later the Board of Applied Languages and Linguistics (BALL) before her retirement in 1992.

As someone directly responsible for preparing students from a wide range of disciplines for study in Europe, she played a key role in building ‘the UK’s European University’.
