KCL and Sussex

Back to news about threats to close philosophy departments and the resistance to them. It appears that the philosophers at Kings College London have won their battle as the latest consultation document published there shows a new commitment to keep them all in place (and includes a decision to keep the threatened chair in palaeography). This victory, in response to a large campaign, is definitely to be celebrated.

By contrast, over at Sussex University there appears to be rather less good news as the management there have decided to charge students for a sit-in in protest at plans to make staff redundant, something that has prompted a letter of protest in the Guardian.
