Tribute to Catherine Belsey:

We were saddened by the news of the passing of our colleague Catherine Belsey last Sunday at the age of 80. Catherine taught English literature at Cardiff University from 1975 until 2006 and was always a fearless and important voice against the privileges of the establishment. She was active in local politics throughout her whole life.

You can read the official Cardiff University obituary here and the Guardian one here, with more detail on her trade union work and feminism advocacy.

Thank you Kate for the works, the legacy, and the inspiration you leave with us.
