About the society
New, official email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Birkbeck Politics Society was founded in the summer of 2018 by postgraduate students of Politics.
In its first year the Society aims to publish at least one issue of a magazine, host a public lecture or debate, and organise two or three socials each term.
Whatever your subject, politics, or experience, do come along and get involved. For further information about how to get involved, please see the foot of this page or contact email@example.com
