SCIO is delighted to announce that Dr Sam Brewitt-Taylor, a longstanding member of the SCIO team, has been appointed Lecturer in Twentieth-century British and European History at Plymouth University. Sam served SCIO first as junior dean and latterly as lecturer in history, and so contributed both to the community life and the academic development of successive cohorts of students. Sam recently finished his doctorate on the 1960s Church of England, and is currently revising his thesis for publication with Oxford University Press.
