This is an exciting departure for the Centre, and we believe that this is the first time a British law school has developed a relationship with a practicing artist in this way. In addition to work with Westminster Law School, Mike will be working with other departments in the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities and with the University of Westminster Archives. More details on all of these activities to follow in due course.
Mike is, in fact, not the first poet to be linked to the University. In addition to a number of poets heavily involved in the work of the Department of Creative Writing, a number of poets such as David Gascoyne, Menghistu Lemma, George Barker, Clive Sansom and Ezra Pound have been involved in the University's work in various forms and we are really pleased to be able to add Mike Garry to this list.
