The academic year 2014/15 has started well for staff and students alike. The department now hosts 27 postdoctoral research staff, the majority of whom are seated in a lovely room on the 5th floor of Wolfson House, joined by advanced doctoral students who have given up their desks in the department for our first year MPhil/PhD students. We were very sad to have to say goodbye to our esteemed lecturer Dr Matthew Skinner, who joins his partner at the University of Kent. Meanwhile we have welcomed two new teaching staff, Dr Kimberly Chong and Dr Galina Oustinova-Stjepanovic, who both join us for a period of three years.
