Update on King's College London

Last month, I blogged about the threat to the Chair of Palaeography at King's and the wider implications for humanities subjects. The threat has not gone away; indeed there has been an international outcry about it.

UCU members at King's College vote for strike action - UCU 22 March 2010
Members of UCU at King's College London have today voted overwhelmingly in favour of both strike action and action short of a strike in their fight to save jobs.

The Engineering department is to be closed after 170 years at King's, the Equalities and Diversity department has been scrapped and there are threats to Philosophy, Information Resources, American Studies and the only Chair of Palaeography in the UK.
