Alex Verge

Assistant Editor

Alex is a second-year History student at the University of Warwick. Of particular interest to him is global history as well as the history of ideas. He will spend the first term of his final year studying in Venice the history of Renaissance Venice and Florence. After looking at some past issues of Reinvention he became keen to participate in the publication of high-quality undergraduate research. Further attraction lay in the possibility presented by working for Reinvention of connecting with students across the globe.

Connie Slater

Book Reviews Editor

Connie is a Second year English Literature and Comparative studies student at the University of Warwick. She is particularly interested in 20th Century, ‘Modern’ Literature and how social/political movements in history have shaped texts in their application to reality. ‘Reinvention’s’ focus on creating a link with the Monash University interests her at this time, particularly as she is applying to do a year abroad in Paris at the Sorbonne and can see the multi-cultural environment of both institutions supports the development of a global community of undergraduate writers.
