Ross (Alison) letter,,

29 April 2010

Dear All,

I am writing to you because of your involvement in the decision to close down Philosophy at Middlesex University. I wish to express my astonishment at this decision and ask you to reconsider it.

I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to visit this highly-regarded department in early 2007. The department has an extraordinary intellectual atmosphere. Its staff and graduate students model the highest standards of scholarship and collegiality.

One of the proofs of their professional reach are the large numbers of students that this Department attracts, trains and graduates.

As you would well know from the RAE data it is your university’s strongest and most well regarded performer in research.

The Department you plan to close is known internationally as one of the best places in the English speaking world for the study of European philosophy.

I urge you to reverse this inexplicable and unjustifiable decision.

Yours truly,
Alison Ross.

Dr Alison Ross
Director of the Centre for Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies
Monash University, Melbourne, AUSTRALIA.
