Parker letter

27 May 2010

Board of Governors
Middlesex University
For the attention of Dean Esche

I am writing to express support for the staff and students who have protested, quite rightly so, against your decision to close down philosophy at Middlesex. The decision to close the department is appalling enough, you well know that it has been an invaluable resource not only to scholars in this discipline but to many other academics who draw on its work. Now you compound this by suppressing dissent.

I am currently External Examiner for Psychoanalysis, and have been sent scripts for your 9 June Exam Board, but I will not participate in this process until you have reversed your decision on the suspensions and reconsidered the closure.

Yours sincerely,

Ian Parker
Professor of Psychology
Manchester Metropolitan University
