The world’s press have been paying tribute to Leeds’ renowned sociologist and leading thinker Professor Zygmunt Bauman, who died yesterday. Professor Bauman was also an influential teacher whose alumni remember him well.
You can find out more about the man and his ideas in an article written for our alumni magazine. His loss will be felt not only in Leeds, but world-wide.
Leeds alumnus, three times space shuttle astronaut, climate scientist, Deputy Director of Goddard’s Sciences and Exploration Directorate and all round Priestley Centre hero, Piers Sellers has been selected to receive the Space Foundation 2017 General James E. Hill Lifetime Space Achievement Award.
The end of a busy week of graduations. Last but not least, we welcome new alumni joining us from Biological Sciences, Physics, Music, Design, Performance & Cultural Industries, Philosophy and Earth & Environment. Well done to all. #Leedsgrad16
