(up to 22 Feb) Please note that my availability is likely to be severely affected from 22 February when UCU members at Goldsmiths will be taking industrial action, along with 60+ other universities, in opposition to the devastating cuts to our pension scheme. If you would like more information about the dispute, please go to www.goldsmithsucu.org. If you are a student, please do contact warden@gold.ac.uk to find out what steps the College is taking to avoid a dispute.
