Apologies for cross-postings

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to bring to your attention a Proposal that will make drastic, deep and controversial cuts to the School of Social Sciences at UWA. Friends of the university have created a website (www.savesocialsciencesuwa.net) to raise awareness about the proposal, its consequences and its significant problems. There is a petition to oppose the proposal, details of which are on the site.

Staff and students affected by the proposed cuts would appreciate if you have some time to get a sense of what is going on, sign the petition and spread the word. Letters of support questioning and condemning the proposal have come in from around the world (https://www.savesocialsciencesuwa.net/letters-of-support). Additional feedback is very welcome, as the consultation period ends Tuesday 27th July.
