Week 2: Learning Community Newsletter

Posted on 16 January 2023

All the latest from the department

I hope everyone is refreshed and ready for the start of teaching this week! Because we also have several interesting political-themed events running across the university. 

The  Department Coffee Morning will be on Tuesday (Tomorrow!) from 9:30am to 11:00am in Politics Reception. It will be great to see you there and catch-up. If you couldn't make it last term do come along and say hello and chat over a free cup of tea / coffee.

This week's “Shut up & Write” session is on Tuesday from 12-2pm in SLB/108They are a great opportunity to get some quality writing time for those of you with dissertations or deadlines to meet. Due to some timetabling constraints these will not always be in the same room so do check where it is each week.
