Humanities are under threat at King’s College, London. One of the proposals is the elimination of the Palaeography Chair. You can read about that – and find some useful links including Mary Beard’s blog post at – http://www.inthemedievalmiddle.com/2010/02/palaeography-at-kings-college-london.html.
There is also a Facebook Group which is keeping track of developments and links available here.
You can sign the petition here: http://www.petitiononline.com/spkcl10/petition.html
If you want to write to King’s about this issue the person to write to is: Professor Rick Trainor, The Principal, King’s College, The Strand, London WC2R 2LS and copy to Professor Jan Palmowski, Head of the School of Arts and Humanities.
