SOPH Bulletin November 2016 Issue Out

The SOPH Bulletin is a means to provide news about developments at the School – including new exciting projects, what staff has been doing and also some reflections from the staff. Initially conceived to keep the SOPH in touch with itself, the initiative is now being made accessible more widely to friends of the School.​
