Dear BERGers

It's been another great year for BERG, with three new appointments. We look forward to welcoming Pawel Fedurek<https://www.eva.mpg.de/primat/staff/pawel-fedurek/index.html> and Anthony Lee<https://www.gla.ac.uk/researchinstitutes/neurosciencepsychology/staff/anthonylee/> in January, and Sharon Kessler<https://www.dur.ac.uk/anthropology/staff/research/?id=15971> in June, 2019.

We've had a cracking autumn BERG seminar series ably organised by Gemma Mackintosh, with Deborah Bruce taking the reins for the spring semester. These meetings are such important opportunities for feedback and for networking, and so we offer big thanks to all our speakers, and to the organisers.

Finally, the University's Top Ten of most shared 2018 articles - as measured by the Altmetric score of attention - has just been released, and two BERGers feature.

Dr Liz Williamson (and BES's Boo Maisels) got number one spot
