The Atrium: A Journal of Academic Voices

The times they are a changing. Students have questions. Do we have answers? Does academic freedom give us the right to .... ? Academic voices can often create divergence, difficulties, disputes, and unending digressions within disciplines, but what real differences do our voices make to our students and our colleagues and our world?

interested in issues such as celebrity culture, sexual
politics, the Regency period, the Byronic hero and
Gothicism to name but a few. The amount of recent
scholarly work devoted to editing his works and
correspondence – including digitisation at the Murray
Archive – to exploring his poetic legacy and to
