The latest issue of Reinvention: an International Journal of Undergraduate Research presents a diverse range of content and themes that all comment on ideas of interconnectedness, interdisciplinarity, and sustainability. Moreover, it includes several contributions from students and staff in the GSD Department!
Current and former students from the School for Cross-faculty Studies presented their research on 12-13 April at the British Conference of Undergraduate Research (BCUR) 2021.
Established in 2011, BCUR is the largest conference in the UK dedicated exclusively to undergraduate research, promoting and sharing research in all disciplines. The conference usually takes place each year at a different University. This year, the University of Leeds delivered the conference virtually.

Dr Stéphanie Panichelli-Batalla, Head of the School for Cross-faculty Studies, was recently interviewed about her research on the Cuban International Solidarity Programme for an article published in the Austrian newspaper, Der Standard.
The article explores the work of Cuban doctors and nurses and the ‘Cut Profits to the Cuban Regime Act of 2020’, introduced by US Republicans and designed to make it more difficult for countries to use the services of Cuban medical professionals.
