        Subject: Humanities and Social Sciences Matter / Valuing the Humanities


Dear all,

If you have not already done so, please sign the petition opposing the  
cuts on the Humanities and Social Sciences Tuition and Research  
budgets. Apparently the petition for the 'Science is Vital' did play a  
role in getting the STEM subjects budget ringfenced, so this is  
definitely worth a try.  Please pass it on to as many others as you can.
