subtext is an independent email newsletter for those working or studying at Lancaster University

subtext is designed:

  • to be an alternative source of information about University governance and politics
  • to be a forum for opinions and debate about the future of the University
  • to enhance a sense of community and collegiality among members of the University
  • to encourage a culture of questioning and speaking out
  • to demonstrate that, even in the context of the modern university, one can freely express opinions without fear of backlash

The first issue of subtext was circulated in December 2005.
