ADM-HEA ANNOUNCEMENTS


Networks issue 12 – now published, look out for your issue

We are very pleased to announce that issue 12 of Networks magazine is now ready and will be sent out in the week beginning 14 March and the pdf version will be published online shortly.

The three feature articles in issue 12 by Professor Mark Hunt, Professor Natalie Fenton and Rutherford offer a critique of the assumptions and conditions that underpin the Government’s increasing commodification of education and reduction of funding for arts and humanities.

This will be the last issue that is published as a hard copy and we are sad to say goodbye to the hard copy publication of the magazine but we are pleased to reveal that from issue 13 onwards we shall be publishing Networks online in a brand new format. We are very excited about this new development and hope that you will find this new way of accessing the magazine to be interesting and valuable.
