Dear Kelloggian Crispies,
T-1 week … the final term of the year is quickly approaching and your MCR is already busy with a showcase of research talks, trips, tours, and sports!
There are a number of events below that require sign-up in advance, including the Houses of Parliament Tour, the Time Management Seminar, and the Ball so check your calendars and take advantage of some unique chances to explore ideas and places this term.
Trinity also means looking forward to next year at Kellogg. For returning students, consider running for an MCR position. All positions will be up for election in Week 4, with the nomination period running in Week 3. More information will be provided by your Junior Deans when term starts but you can talk to any of the Committee about the various roles. You can find their contact details on the MCR website. Additionally, with the first year of the MCR-run Kellogg Bar complete, we will also be looking for a bar manager for next year. If you would like to learn more about what this entails, speak to Robin Ankele. The MCR will pay for the training course that is required. Of course, you can also sign up to bar tend as well! Get in touch if that is the case.
Enjoy the last week of non-term schedules and hope to see you around (the increasingly green and flowery) Kellogg,
Your MCR President,

Emerging technologies and technological development is of interest to all of the academic world. Ongoing changes affect all aspects of our work and lives, way beyond our research methodologies, changing our fieldwork and influencing focus of our study, including even the way the academic sector develops.
The aim of the first Kellogg Science and Humanities Seminars is to show to the wider public the diversity of ways in which technological novelties are entering our fields and research interests – from biology, nanotechnology, ICTs and machine learning, to digital humanities, social mobility and development critique.
