Read Seven Bridges Vol. 4

Edited by Sarah Corrigan, Phil McBride, Matthew Musgrave and Megan Wilson.


Welcome to the 2016 volume of Seven Bridges.

Much like our predecessors, we hope we have continued the tradition of excellence but also pushed to expand content in a more innovative direction. This volume features contributions from a range of areas across the College. Undergraduate and postgraduate students have served as authors, peer reviewers and Editors.

This academic year, the Editors have included a range of creative pieces of work from the School of Creative Industries. Seven Bridges: Creative was developed to provide an outlet for students from an artistic background to present their work on the same platform as those from more traditional academic subjects.

We also believe that the continued collaboration across NCG HE provision will build upon the ethos of Student as Producer and continue to offer opportunities for all involved.

The Editorial Board would like to take the opportunity to thank Emma Brice, Kevin Boyd, Jonathan Eaton, Laura Gower and Cecilia Holmes and Claire Thornton for their help and support throughout this process.
