Birkbeck UCU letter

1 May 2010

Dear Sirs, Madam,

Birkbeck UCU notes with dismay the decision of the Dean of the School of Arts and Education at Middlesex University to close the university’s renowned philosophy department. The reaction of colleagues and students across our College has been one of shock and disbelief that a department, widely considered to be vital to the fabric of intellectual life in this county, should be closed in this way.

Birkbeck UCU deplores this decision, which appears to be as ill-judged as it is confrontational. We pledge unstinting support for our colleagues at Middlesex.
