An open letter to the writer and senders of the ‘Punish a Muslim’ letter,

I’ll be honest as a fellow born-and-bred Yorkshire woman, I’ve always been told to speak my mind but remain polite. Yet I'm equally aware of how passionate and loud we can be on average, so this is going to be a difficult task. Bear with me.   I’m not going to do what others have [...]

Making the most of your surroundings: Year Review

It's been a little over a year since I re-entered London to pursue my next project, my doctoral research into exclusions in online spaces. It's also been about seven years and three weeks since I first connected to the capital, I mention this only because today I was not clocked as being from anywhere else. [...]

FutureLearn Course – Empire: the Controversies of British Imperialism

This morning I signed up to an 6 week online course, which starts on the 16th of January 2017. The course is run on the Future Learn platform, is completely free and entitled 'Empire: the Controversies of British Imperialism'. It should take only 3 hours a week, so I'm hoping to fit it in without [...]

Days Drag On… What do I find on my phone?

Crazy long day - feel dead and drained and I'm in no way prepared for the mess that will be tomorrow. MA class (not done my reading!) then shifts in another store, as part of my new job! The need to keep balancing between love of learning and money to keep learning, is a hard [...]

MDX LGBT Society Talk About their Film Awareness Video

Collating my work for the blog. It seems so long ago that I was at Middlesex with a entire gang of guys, gals and in-betweens who enjoyed engaging with the university life. As well as having a sense of ownership of the atrium spaces in the Grove. Beautiful place to film within, it really should feature more in productions.

The Literary Gazette

Sometimes the best events come from the simplest of ideas.

Ahead of the North London Literary festival, Middlesex students are hard at work at many creative endeavours.  Though we hunger for news on the highly anticipated app, other creative committees and students are conducting their events earlier in more public forums. 

On the 1st of February, a few intrepid equality and liberation activists or in other-words Middlesex University’s LGBT Society (MDX LGBT) banded together to create a Campaign Video.

I, the secretary of MDX LGBT, caught up with the President and Treasurer to find out more about why and how the video was created as well as their future aspirations for the Middlesex Society.

I am joined by Peter Dillon, 20, the President of MDX LGBT and Tom Stock, 26, the Treasurer of MDX LGBT, who share their views and journey on leaving a lasting legacy.

THE MUSUEM OF CURIOSITY, SOHO

Imagine a collection of densely pack streets, full of warm, friendly people, neon signs, gay sights and enticing smells and you have started to get a small inkling of what it means to find yourself In Soho. In my present state I can't really explain the excitement of  treading those semi-cobbled pathways. But I do [...]
