Goodbye to Mike Mason

Mike MasonA very fond farewell from LSM’s staff and students to Mike Mason, Principal Lecturer and Programme Leader for the BA (Hons) Media Production, who has retired from the University of Lincoln. Mike moved into teaching after his artistic participation in the cultural sector in the UK and mainland Europe that encompassed mainstream and alternative media.

Mike’s message: I wish you all a great future in the full knowledge that the School of Media will continue to be the very best place to achieve what our students aspire to. I came to University as an undergraduate student in 1990 with the ambition to get a reasonable degree and hopefully move into teaching – I have succeeded in both those ambitions and much, much more. It is the ‘much more’ that means I will be leaving these hallowed halls a very happy chap indeed.” Continue reading
