August news from the Centre.

Guy Osborn and Andrew Smith had the following chapter published: Olympic brandscapes: London 2012 and the seeping commercialisation of public space in The London Olympics and urban development: the mega-event city, Routledge, London, pp. 139-153. ISBN 9781138794948. This is the first output from their ongoing research collaboration. 

We also announced two events separately during August. Firstly, we announced the first Law and Artificial Intelligence event. This is part of a ‘Law and AI’ Series and we hope to announce other events shortly. Secondly, August also saw the release of Mike Garry’s Saint Anthony. We are delighted to be able to report that this has been a massive success, see the Twitter item from Mike below. You can still buy the single and contribute to this great cause via the Saint Anthony website.
