SPEP Statement on Middlesex University

We note with grave concern the decision to terminate the philosophy programs at Middlesex University. The Middlesex philosophy program is a leading center of continental philosophy research, spearheaded by its renowned Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy.  Click here to read more about the program.

In the 2008 RAE (Research Assessment Exercise), Middlesex was rated first in philosophy among post-1992 universities in Britain, with 65% of its research activity judged “world-leading” or “internationally excellent.”

The SPEP Executive Committee urges SPEP members to support their Middlesex colleagues by signing the online petition.  Click here to sign the petition.
