The Australian National University’s much-troubled School of Music has named a new interim head. (Again.)

Professor Malcolm Gillies will take charge for six months while a permanent head is sought. (Again.)

His predecessor, acting head Royston Gustavson ‘left the position unexpectedly earlier this month’. The Canberra Times adds: ‘An ANU spokesman said it would not comment on the circumstances surrounding Dr Gustavson’s unexpected departure but that he would be returning to a “substantial leadership role” as Associate Dean (Education) of the College of Arts and Social Sciences after he returned from leave.’
