It’s been a tumultuous week at King’s College London. Not only have students been vigorously protesting the planned staff cuts, but now the BBC reports that staff have been balloted for strike regarding the 205 planned job losses. Although the college has reached no final decision regarding future employment policy, its decision to scrap the UK’s only chair of Paleography and its costly acquisition of part of Somerset House at a time when students’ education is at stake has led to widespread criticism. With the future of many academic departments uncertain, it's clear that protests -supported by academics worldwide- are set to continue for quite some time.
