Professor Sir Terry Pratchett has joined the staff at Trinity College Dublin as an adjunct Professor in the School of English.

Pratchett's first lecture will take place on Thursday 4 November at 7 pm and has been entitled 'The importance of being absolutely amazed about everything'.

Commenting on his entry to academic life, Professor Pratchett commented: "Until recently I couldn't even spell academic and now I are one!"

Since December 2008 when he was conferred with an honorary degree Pratchett's relationship with Trinity College has blossomed into something special with Colin Smythe, Pratchett's literary agent and past Trinity Graduate, donating a complete back-catalogue of Terry's published translations to the College Library in 2009.

Professor Pratchett has not signed a formal contract of employment at the University, preferring instead to end his tenure at the college when, in his own words:
"I've robbed all my own books back from the library and burned all that Harry Potter shit at the main gates."
