Euro­pean stud­ies

THE (Times Higher Education) - - THE POPPLETONIAN -

Janet Fluellen, our Di­rec­tor of Cur­ricu­lum De­vel­op­ment, has de­nied over­re­act­ing to the re­cent letter sent to all higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions by the Euroscep­tic Con­ser­va­tive MP Chris Heaton-Har­ris.

Ms Fluellen agreed that Mr Heaton-Har­ris’s letter had only asked for in­for­ma­tion on the teach­ing of Brexit, but she thought it ev­i­dent that it had

been prompted by a con­cern that uni­ver­si­ties were not pro­vid­ing a bal­anced ac­count of the is­sue.

It was for this rea­son that she had de­cided to close down any cour­ses that might foster the im­pres­sion that with­draw­ing from the Euro­pean Union was not a wholly sat­is­fac­tory op­tion.

Th­ese in­cluded: What a Load of Brexit (Se­condyear Pol­i­tics); Bal­ly­hoo, Bol­locks and

Brexit (Third-year So­ci­ol­ogy); and Bug­ger Brexit (Post­grad­u­ate Eco­nomics).

Ms Fluellen re­fused to com­ment on ru­mours that in the fur­ther in­ter­ests of per­ceived bal­ance, she was also seek­ing to have the im­age of Ja­cob ReesMogg re­moved from the dart­board in the se­nior com­mon room of Ken­neth Clarke Col­lege.
