Food for thought

On Friday 9 March, the Department of Criminology hosted an international lunch to celebrate the range of students enrolled on their campus-based Master's programmes.

Both international and home students attended the event, and were invited to bring food to share from their own cultures and countries. The foods on offer ranged from chilli paneer to japanese rice balls, feta cheese pies and marmite flatbreads. The lunch was so successful that another has been planned for next semester.

Wendy Fitzgibbon, Reader in Criminology, said: "This is a great way to share and celebrate the cuisines and cultures of all our students. Not only was the lunch fun, it enabled students and staff to meet one another in an informal setting to discuss different aspects of their courses, cultures and share ideas. The lunch lead to conversations not only about food but about different countries, their criminal justice systems and ideas on how to share other cultural ideas."
