Summer break

By Jul.26, 2010

So, it looks like it’s that time of the year when the University goes quieter and we are all ready for a break.

You must have realised it by now, as the blogging has slowly decreased over the past few weeks. The three of us here at the Research & Graduate College are getting ready for a summer break. We have been sending the last emails before we leave, making sure we don’t leave anything urgent behind. Of course we are also planning and getting ready for the new academic year.

Meanwhile, Jaye hosted a luncheon to celebrate the achievements of our GTAs completing their teaching assistantships this year. Well done you guys! Congratulations and all the best with your new projects! [photos are available here].

Victoria has been busy editing the July’s newsletter and putting together the 2010-11 SPoRT programme [check this link often for updates], and I have been preparing for some projects when I come back, amongst which is the first edition of a student-led online conference our PhD students in Translation and Interpreting Studies are organising.

It’s been an interesting, hectic academic year highly marked by collaborative ventures and team work. It was a good year! Now with most of the student community and staff away for the summer holidays, the place seems to lack the same kind of energy. It’s a good hint for a break. So here we go!

We will be back at the end of August, when we will resume the blogging activity too. Until then, enjoy the summer.Any ideas worth sharing or comments, please don’t hesitate to post them here.
