Names On Paper
I am, for a variety of reasons, rather impressed by the expressions of condemnation for the Israeli assault on Gaza published in the Guardian on Friday. This is not least because of no less than 13 academics currently working at Warwick (including China Mieville) on the list, mostly from the English department, and including one currently teaching the major section of my course. In addition, I can think of about 4 or 5 people in the department off the top of my head who no doubt condemn the violence, even if they would not subscribe to the exact wording of the petition. It almost makes me happy I chose the place.
