Since the beginning of the academic year celebrations have been ongoing to mark 100 years of the Student’s Union at The University of Nottingham. Events have included reunions and exhibitions illustrating the development of student activity over the 100 years. As part of the festivities the Student’s Union are running a campaign to highlight 100 heroes who have contributed to enhancing the opportunities and experiences available at the University. Current and former staff and students were able to submit nominations relating to four categories; Leaders and Champions, Unsung Heroes, Tutors and Lecturers, Clubs and Societies.

We are delighted to inform you that to date, there have been four nominations for staff and students from the School of Humanities! Congratulations to Dr Nick Thomas (Department of History), Dr Gaby Neher (Department of Art History), Associate Professor Andy Fisher (Department of Philosophy) and alumna Charlotte Hopson (BA Art History 2012).

Nick Thomas, a Dearing Award winner in 2009, has been nominated for his work supporting students, and for setting up a student-led peer mentoring system in History. Gaby Neher a Dearing Award winner in 2000, 2009 and 2013 leads projects within the department including Crop Up Gallery and the student mentoring scheme as well as lecturing in Venetian Renaissance Art and Art at the Tudor Courts, among others. Dr Andy Fisher, a Dearing Award winner in 2008 and 2012 has a great interest in the philosophy of education and as a result runs a Philosophy club at a number of primary schools around Nottingham. Finally, Charlotte Hopson, who graduated in 2012, received her nomination for setting up and founding Crop Up Gallery, and it seems rather apt that a celebration event for the 100 Heroes will be spearheaded by Crop Up Gallery, an initiative so closely associated with the School of Humanities!

The celebrations for the Students’ Union centenary culminate in an exhibition held in the Portland Building from the 5 April 2014. Students involved in the Crop Up Gallery society will be designing this exhibition as well as an online exposition to display all of the heroes that have been recognised. Congratulations to our Humanities heroes for being awarded with this great achievement.
