The SOAS Spirit is back!
The SOAS Spirit is your independent student-run newspaper which has had an on campus presence since 1936.
The Spirit is picking up where we left off and holding those in positions of power accountable and producing content which students will find informative, thought provoking and entertaining.
Head down to the JCR to pick up the first edition of the relaunched SOAS Spirit!
In our first edition, we cover the historic decision by SOAS management to bring all workers in-house by September 2018. Following the Student-Staff Forum earlier on this term, we delve into the University’s deficit.
Elsewhere, we examine the decision by the U.S. to leave UNESCO, the Catalonian Referendum and the criticism of SOAS Alum, Aung San Suu Kyi, over the Rohingya Crisis.
Our Features section includes our newly launched Humans of SOAS feature, which will focus on Dominik – the man behind the iconic Hare Krishna stall. This section also includes a selection poetry, Lockyer’s History – an interview with Dr. Angus Lockyer.
The plight of the Rohingya, the Chagossians’ right to return home and the writings of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Liu Xiaobo, are amongst the topics discussed in our Comments section.
Our Reviews section covers the Death of Stalin, the Journeys of Independence exhibition at LSE and the Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power.
An Interview with Sophie Bennet and Danny Edwards, the SU Sports Officers is enclosed in our Sports section along with a list of SOAS Sports fixtures and coverage of the ‘This Girl Can’ campaign.
Print editions SOAS Spirit are available in the JCR.
