Dear Vice-Chancellor Driscoll,
I am writing to express my support and admiration for the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy at Middlesex University. I have collaborated with many distinguished faculty in this programme on the English edition of the “Vocabulary of European Philosophy” (published in French in 2004) and have had the pleasure of inviting several of them to NYU as featured speakers in our “New French Philosophy” lecture series.
I urge you, along with all my colleagues in Comparative Literature and French at NYU, to reconsider shutting down this much esteemed department. Our transatlantic ties with British philosophy and continental thought will be infinitely the poorer if this closure stands.
Sincerely and Respectfully Yours,
Professor of French, English and Comparative Literature
New York University
