Last year was the 100th anniversary of Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) at Oxford. This is an important milestone and the College plans to celebrate both PPE and the three component subjects.
The past 18 months have been a challenging time to organise any celebrations so, in the style of the Olympics, we are making the occasion a year later than planned! We have a calendar of PPE-inspired events (fully detailed below) starting in November with our virtual Annual Seminar and with our Nobel Prize winner Mohmmad Yunus, to launch the new Centenary Visiting Professor of PPE.
The new Visiting Professor is a significant seed gift by a very generous donor. Through it, we hope to attract the world’s best academics to our community to work with students and fellows. We plan to build upon this seed gift over the coming year so that it is fully funded in time for the arrival of the first Professor.
“Oxford’s renowned PPE course has attracted some of the world’s finest academics to the university during the last 100 years; this new Visiting Professorship is designed to ensure that this continues for generations to come.”
