Posted on 17 October 2022

All the latest from the department

I hope you are all keeping well and look forward to seeing you around campus as term gets into full swing, the nights draw in and (unfortunately) the rain starts. As always for those looking for a warm drink and a cup of tea/coffee alongside some relaxed chat about all things political, the Department Coffee Morning will be on Wednesday from 9:30am to 11:00am in Politics Reception. 

We also have some interesting events this week - see below for details :-)
