In addition to te research work I'm doing, this week is REF week. For those of you not familiar, this is the exercise that haoppens every few years to determine the research ranking of Universities, and hence their government funding. Very pleased to report the University of Liverpool has done very well indeed in a number of areas, but for those of us who work there its a very hectic time. And straight on from that we need to start analysing results and planning for the next one in 2020.
In excellent news National Museums Liverpool have very kindly agreed to let us use some images for an upcoming exhibition, and plans are going very well for the 'Life and Limb' exhibition and talks that will be happening after Easter, looking at the American Civil War aftermath, and hosted in Abercromby Square. News will follow soon!
