Should we bring back The Medwire?

Oct
13

Wagwan, fam.

I just wrote that to attract attention, I don't know what it actually means.

I was recently passed down the ashes of what was formerly known as 'The Medwire', the independent student magazine for the Medway campus, and wasn't entirely sure what to do.

I know there are some second years interested in relaunching and rebranding as a news website (perhaps with a online video component too?), as this is cheaper and more manageable (no stressful monthly deadlines), and I spoke to the first years this morning.

On Nationalism and the Intolerance Around Brexit

Oct
12

Quite recently the issue of national identity was raised in my class.

Now as someone who takes a great deal of pride in my British nationality, my beliefs tend to cause a bit of a stir whenever I voice them (for reasons I will soon get into) and as a result I’m no stranger to the usual myriad of offense taking and name-calling that usually goes on in these kinds of discussions.

One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi: Modern day racism in the Deep South

Oct
12

           

In late August I was in Natchez, Mississippi, an overnight stop between Memphis and New Orleans, at the end of a three week road trip across some of the Southern US states. My family and I returned from dinner to a mostly vacant hotel, entering through the bar, where a large group of African-American people celebrating some occasion sat around a table enjoying their evening. Tired from a day of driving, I went straight up to bed. However, my 70-year-old grandfather, a fan of the three Ws (whisky, Westerns and Willie Nelson) and on his first real overseas holiday stayed at the bar to indulge in a nightcap.

Thrown in the not so deep end

Sep
23
So, last week was my induction week for the MA course in multimedia journalism here at Kent. Deciding to embark on this nine or so months of intensity was probably the hardest decision of my life.
 
Earlier in the year, I thought I'd made my mind up about studying political theory at York. I'd even started looking at accommodation. Yet, a nagging feeling prevented me from immediately accepting the offer of a place, and so I prevaricated for several months.
