'Impact of Interdisciplinarity' was an event designed specifically for KCL’s population of interdisciplinary undergraduate students and particularly targeted at final year Liberal Arts students. It had two distinct stages: a collaborative ‘simulation exercise’ in the morning, during which students were put into the role of creative directors for a fictional magazine with the objective of saving it from bankruptcy, and then a session with speakers and a Q&A in the afternoon. 

Attending speakers included two special external guests: 

  • Emily Murrell, Senior Policy Advisor for the European and Global Issues Secretariat of the Cabinet Office, UK Civil Service. 
  • Dr Derek Vallès, Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, the Royal Society of Arts, and the Royal Geographical Society.
