Petition For Jailed Philosophy Student (From Professor Stella Sandford)

Dear philosophers,

Please consider signing the petition below. Aras Amiri was studying for the MA Aesthetics and Art Theory in the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy at Kingston University when she was unjustly arrested while visiting Iran in March 2018. As you may have recently seen reported in the news media, she was subsequently imprisoned without trial and her appeal rejected. She continues as a registered student in my department. She earlier completed one assessment while under house arrest in Iran and is still trying, as far as is possible, to continue her studies in philosophy even now. The petition calls for her release; signing it also lets her know that she is not forgotten.

Thank you, Stella
