Week 7: Learning Community Newsletter

Posted on 18 February 2020

out now

This week I’m organising our Learning Community Newsletter a little differently (exciting, I know)!

As well as all the great events we have lined up for the coming week, I’ll also post a couple of other events ‘for your diary’; that is, ones in the next few weeks. Hopefully, this will give you the chance for a bit more advance planning. 

Hope you all have a fantastic week, 

Jeremy Moulton (Learning Community Officer)

This week

Politics Seminar

Wednesday 19th February

12-2pm, D/N/104

Professor Tim Bale (Queen Mary, University of London) is coming to the Department to deliver a seminar that promises to be as interesting as its title is long: ‘“For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” The UK Conserative Party, Brexit, and the electoral gain/ policy coherence/ organisational integrity trade-off on immigration’. To read more about Tim’s seminar, do check out the event page

Open Lecture

Wednesday 19th February

4-5pm, W/222

Dr Rin Ushiyama (University of Cambridge) comes to the University on Wednesday to deliver his talk, ‘Historical denial and right-wing politics in contemporary Japan’. The event page has more details on what promises to be a fascinating lecture. 

Careers and Placements

Careers Session

Tuesday 18th February

3-4pm, D/L/028

Charlie King will be delivering a special session tomorrow entitled, ‘How to use your summer effectively’ (it’s a students-only event but I think we could all do with a hand on this!). The session will focus on the core University of York programmes such as our new Community Volunteering Project, our Internship Bureau, and also making speculative applications elsewhere. 

Ones for the diary

Politics Society Annual General Meeting

Thursday 27th February

6:30-8:30pm, D/N/056

The Annual General Meeting of PolSoc is your chance to shape the make-up of PolSoc in the year ahead, whether it be as a voter or as someone running for election! I would thoroughly recommend coming to this event and contributing to the future of this great society. Check out PolSoc’s Facebook and Instagram for more. 

Celebrating Disabled Women

8-12pm, Vanburgh Arms

A night to celebrate disabled women and nonbinary people on and off-campus, with several speakers followed on by an open mic, where anyone can speak. Everyone is welcome and buffet-style snacks will be provided. See the event page for more.
