Refugee scholars reunited at the University of Warwick

Scholars at the University of Warwick will be reunited at this free talk on Monday 16 November in Warwick Arts Centre to remind us that Warwick has been supportive of refugees for decades.

Alan Phillips, former SU president and General Secretary of the World University Service, Catalina Palma the first Chilean to come to the University of Warwick who now works for CONICYT, the Chilean government educational grant giving body and John King, Emeritus Professor of Latin American Literature who taught at Warwick from the 1970s until his recent retirement, will be reunited at this free talk on Monday 16 November in Warwick Arts Centre.

The talk will cover a mid-late 1970s government funded project, administered by World University Service, which gave almost a thousand grants to student and academic refugees fleeing persecution in Chile, who came to UK universities including Warwick.
