At today’s teach-in, it was suggested that members of the University community, and at the very least members of its Faculty of Arts, might want to use Arts Squared as a space to make available any letter that they have written or will write to either President Indira Samarasekera or Chancellor Linda Hughes in regard to their choice to award an honorary doctor of laws to Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, the current Chair of Nestlé corporation. In the event that anyone would like to do this, please email a copy of your letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or cc email@example.com directly on the letter. Alternatively, everyone should feel free to copy and paste their letters into the comment box below.
