As reported the other day, the administration at the University at Hull had decided to prohibit new students from studying philosophy. It now appears they have changed their mind.
Kathleen Lennon, professor emeritus at Hull, sent the following update on the situation to PHILOS-L:
This is just to update you on the situation at Hull. The university has reconsidered and lifted the suspension of recruitment for BA Philosophy for next year. The future remains uncertain as they are still conducting large scale reviews. But this is an encouraging move and we will keep you informed of any developments as their reviews unfold.
Thank you very much indeed to the very large number of colleagues who emailed in support of the philosophy unit. It was a fantastic response and colleagues here felt supported and encouraged by the scale and warmth of it.
