New term approaching - and a new book from Claudia Seymour

It's the time of the year when we start to think about the new term. I am receiving emails from incoming students, and it's great to get to know people a bit before we plunge into lectures and tutorials. There's even the odd late application that manages to sneak through the system ;)

We are looking forward to welcoming our new cohort, and we're also celebrating our long term professional contacts. I'm really happy to announce the forthcoming publication of Claudia Seymour's work on war and survival in Congo. Claudia completed her PhD with us some years back and is a Research Associate in the Development Studies department. The book's cover is by Miriam Nabarro, who was a VCD student the first year I taught at SOAS, and is now Artist in Residence. It is nothing short of brilliant to see Claudia and Miriam's work coming together in this way :)
