Closure of Philosophy at Middlesex – Petition: The APA has learned that an administrative decision has been reached to close all Philosophy programs at Middlesex University, UK. Our British colleagues are calling for international solidarity, and a petition is circulating on an international scale. The Fédération Internationale des Sociétés de Philosophie (FISP) has circulated a link to this petition to all member societies. The APA’s Committee on International Cooperation has already joined the British Philosophical Association and the Australasian Association of Philosophy in a letter to appropriate administrators protesting this action. The link is here. Please read the petition and determine whether you would wish to add your name to the list of signers.
