Council of University Classical Departments | CUCD


susan deacy Welcome to CUCD Bulletin, the forum for raising, reflecting on and debating issues of academic and professional significance for UK classics teachers (of all sorts – ECRs, PhD students, in-post academics, visiting lecturers, hourly-paid staff etc.) As editor, a role I’ve held since Bulletin 40 (2011), I welcome pieces of various shapes – from short reports on pedagogical events/projects through to longer, reflective articles. Recent issues have included obituaries celebrating the lives of late colleagues. Each number is crowned by the statistics on student numbers. Do contact me if you would like to offer a piece or suggest a topic. We publish throughout the year, building up to a publication ‘moment’ each winter.
