Professor Krishan Kumar, former lecturer at the University of Kent, has recently had a chapter published in a book entitled ‘Utopian Univeristies: A Global History of the New Campuses of the 1960s (Bloomsbury Academic, 2021)’.
Krishan’s chapter (pp.141-155) is called ‘The Old and the New: The University of Kent at Canterbury’.
Krishan taught at the University from 1967-1996 and his chapter is partly a memoir of his time at the University and partly a history of developments at Kent, particularly in the early days.
