Hi everyone, I hope you all enjoyed the bank holiday weekend! It's another short newsletter this week. It was great to see some of you at the Coffee Morning today (these will be running all term on Tuesdays from 9:30-11 am in the Politics Reception area).
Finally we are still recruiting for focus groups to understand better how to make our assessment feedback useful to you. If you have thoughts on your feedback that you would like to share you can sign up here!

York Asia Research Network Annual Lecture: "Emotional subjects: Citizenship, identity and the emotional world of disability in China"
Wednesday 5th May 5pm,
Berrick Saul Auditorium
Our speaker will be Professor Sarah Dauncey of the University of Nottingham, who has published extensively on gender, culture and identity in pre-modern, modern and contemporary China. Most recently, she has pioneered a new field relating to disability in modern and contemporary Chinese culture and society. The results of this project have resulted in numerous articles and book chapters, as well as a monograph – Disability in Contemporary China: Citizenship, Identity and Culture (Cambridge University Press, 2020).
