Here are a couple of pictures taken at Friday’s reception in the Attlee Room at the House of Lords to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Department of Politics at the University of Hull.
The first picture shows the University Chancellor, Baroness Bottomley, in full flow, recounting how she first knew about the virtues of the university, when she had students on placement from the Politics Department.
In the second picture, Baroness Bottomley is seen with three of the current students on placement, Susannah Whitaker, Rebecca Yates, and Jake Bryan.
I shall post more pictures shortly, including of some of the distinguished departmental alumni who attended.
