Patel letter

29 April 2010

Dear Professors

The philosophy department at Middlesex University is an internationally
recognized center of excellence. The research carried out there has
influenced fields from literature to the sciences to my own domain, African
studies. I have no doubt that you have been inundated with reactions from
scholars worldwide who are surprised that you have decided to axe your
highest performing department. I don’t imagine it’s too late to reverse this
ill-concieved decision, and maintain one of the few programs that give
Middlesex University a forceful presence on the international academic
