Masters student starts ambulance volunteer work to support the NHS
Jinjue, one of our MA Psychology and Education students, has started a four week's ambulance volunteering as part of the St. John Ambulance.
She says "“As you may be aware, St John Ambulance is currently working very closely with the NHS to provide any support available at this critical moment with the pandemic. As a St John volunteer, we are offered the option to volunteer for the SJA response to COVID-19, and I have signed up to support the NHS. I will do my best to stay safe in the frontline, and hope everyone does their bit to stay safe as well!"
Well done Jinjue. It is really heartwarming to hear how our community is helping the NHS during this time.
MA Global Education and International Development student, Robyn Shreeve, has had a version of one of their essays published in the journal 'Compare'. This is a fantastic achievement, well done Robyn!
Colloquium 17 June 2020, University of Warwick
The University of Warwick is hosting a one-day colloquium, jointly funded by the British Academy and the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain, to explore therapeutic philosophical traditions in light of educational issues, and in response to calls by policy makers that schools should be teaching about mental health. Philosophers, psychoanalysts and education researchers will bring their experience and expertise to the conversation. There will be a special focus on Wittgenstein and Stanley Cavell.
Speakers: Josh Cohen (Goldsmiths), Richard Gipps (Oxford), Joanna Moncrieff (UCL), Adrian Skilbeck (IOE/Winchester), Paul Standish (IOE), Emma Williams (Warwick), and ‘in conversation’ with Adam Phillips (psychoanalyst and writer).
Spaces are limited, so early registration is encouraged.
There is no fee for attending the colloquium. Lunch will be provided.
Organised by Emma Williams, Centre for Education Studies, University of Warwick.
