Welcome to November’s edition of Dialogue magazine.
In Dialogue 11 we introduced our first Dialogue competition to mark World Photography Day and we’re excited to announce the winners in this edition.
Over the summer, the University moved from hybrid working as a pilot project, towards a more long-term implementation of the arrangements and Dialogue caught up with some colleagues from HR-OD to get more details about hybrid working at Durham.
Also in this edition, you can find out about: a century of global fascination with Tutankhamun; the first direct evidence that babies react differently to various smells and tastes while in the womb by looking at their facial expressions; and how you can stay safe while travelling during the autumn and winter months.
Dialogue looks back at the first ever Making a Difference staff event asking what the next steps will be following the event, and we also learn how much work is involved in getting ready to welcome our new and returning students at the start of the academic year.
Finally, we’re proud to share with you that Dialogue has won a Gold Award for Best Publication at the CIPR PRide North East awards.
