#BlackLivesMatter

Over the weekend the academic team have heard from a number of our students – both in email and in video calls - expressing strong feelings about the deplorable killing of George Floyd and the following unfolding events in the US, highlighting their concern that there hasn’t been an ‘official’ response from the department.
Thanks to all of you who have made your views felt, and for prompting an internal debate about such an important subject.
You will know that we don’t generally comment collectively on world events – but it’s clear that we should be reacting to this one.

Visit this Friday Feb 28 from Rachel Russell from Express Online

Rachel Russell, the incoming Overnight Editor of Express Online (Daily Express newspaper group) is coming to visit the CfJ to talk to students this Friday, 28 Feb.

She will be here about noon and will speak to any year groups that can join us in G1-04.  Rob has said people in his MA/YiJ groups can join in, if they are not on the trail of Greta in Bristol.

Rachel will talk about her experience in journalism and also about a plan she has to recruit graduates and students for either paid contracts or paid occasional freelance shifts.
