The Senate approved the closure of the School of Historical and Interdisciplinary Studies after the School council unanimously agreed to put forward a proposal to dissolve the School. The Departments of Medieval Studies and History underwent an extraordinary review last year with the aim of getting a clear picture of the profile of the two departments and their relationship to each other and the School. One of the conclusions of the review was that the School has probably outlived its direct utility.

The Senate approved the new governance structure of the Nationalism Program developed after a joint discussion of the ad hoc committee (chaired by the Provost and including Professor Nadia Al-Bagdadi and Professor Bela Greskovits) and the faculty of the Nationalism Studies Program.
