Politics Taster Sessions
As part of Transitions Week, we are running some special taster sessions with some of the academics who will teach you during your time here at UEA. No preparation is needed. Just come along, and get the chance to meet some of staff – in some informal, fun and interactive sessions.

Listening, not looking: the importance of sound & music to society with Professor John Street It is often assumed that we understand and engage with the world through what we read and what we see. But, according to Jacques Attali, this is a mistake. ‘The world’, he wrote, was ‘not the beholding. It is for hearing. It is not legible, but audible’. In this session, we ask whether Attali is right, by looking at (listening to!) the ways in which sound – as music, as noise, as silence - changes us and our world.

The Handmaid's Tale: Screening and Discussion, with Dr. Helen Warner Bruce Miller's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's classic novel tells the story of a totalitarian New England where fertile women are kept prisoner in reproductive servitude. Despite being written nearly 35 years earlier, the story resonates with contemporary audiences and is often used as a touchstone in contemporary debates about women's and LGBTQ+ rights. This session includes a screening of the pilot episode and invites lively discussion on the relationship between popular culture and contemporary social and political issues.

The Politics of Football? with Dr. Toby James In recent times some scholars have tried to establish something called a sub-field called the 'Political Economy of Football'. Are they just trying to talk sport when they should be doing more serious things? Or is there something actually seriously political about football? When Pep Guardiola talks about Catalonia, is this politics? When FIFA decides to hold the World Cup in Qatar 2022, is this politics too?

Oh help! Oh no! The international politics of the Gruffalo with Professor Lee Jarvis What sort of world do we live in? Are threats to our survival real, or invented? Who has power, and from where does it derive? On whom, or what, can we rely to keep ourselves safe? Such questions are at the heart of disciplines such as International Relations and Politics. They have animated philosophers and theorists for centuries. And, in this session, we will be exploring such questions for ourselves through a critical reading of Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo, which has rather a lot to teach us, I suspect, about international politics.

Should we fear China? with Dr. Ra Mason We are constantly being told that China is rising (or has risen), and is increasing its influence on the international stage. Is this a positive or a negative? Should we be happy that China is boosting economic growth around the world and balancing against the power of the United States? Or should we be more concerned that China remains an authoritarian state with little regard for democracy or human rights?

Prof pwns Youtubers? with Professor Alan Finlayson Research from 2018 found that in the previous year 43% of 18-34s had watched politically-related videos online compared to 15% of over-55s. In other words, students don’t learn about politics from books anymore but from people talking on You Tube. Is that true? What political videos do you watch online? Is all of this a fantastic development in the democratisation of political culture? Or is it the beginning of the end of the culture of literacy which made free, equal and rational government seem like a good idea? Tl;dr: everything about politics you saw on You Tube was wrong.

Trump University with Dr. Michael Frazer Join our resident Noo Yawka Dr. Michael L. Frazer (Lecturer in Political and Social Theory) in attempting to interpret Trump and the state of American politics today. What effect is Trump having on the American political system of checks and balances? Can the American constitution survive being made great again? The greatest ever session where you get to critique (sad) or acclaim (greatest ever) the Trump administration. Come ready to participate.

24 Sep 17:00 - 18:00

Politics Taster Sessions
As part of Transitions Week, we are running some special taster sessions with some of the academics who will teach you during your time here at UEA. No preparation is needed. Just come along, and get the chance to meet some of staff – in some informal, fun and interactive sessions.

Listening, not looking: the importance of sound & music to society with Professor John Street It is often assumed that we understand and engage with the world through what we read and what we see. But, according to Jacques Attali, this is a mistake. ‘The world’, he wrote, was ‘not the beholding. It is for hearing. It is not legible, but audible’. In this session, we ask whether Attali is right, by looking at (listening to!) the ways in which sound – as music, as noise, as silence - changes us and our world.

The Handmaid's Tale: Screening and Discussion, with Dr. Helen Warner Bruce Miller's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's classic novel tells the story of a totalitarian New England where fertile women are kept prisoner in reproductive servitude. Despite being written nearly 35 years earlier, the story resonates with contemporary audiences and is often used as a touchstone in contemporary debates about women's and LGBTQ+ rights. This session includes a screening of the pilot episode and invites lively discussion on the relationship between popular culture and contemporary social and political issues.

The Politics of Football? with Dr. Toby James In recent times some scholars have tried to establish something called a sub-field called the 'Political Economy of Football'. Are they just trying to talk sport when they should be doing more serious things? Or is there something actually seriously political about football? When Pep Guardiola talks about Catalonia, is this politics? When FIFA decides to hold the World Cup in Qatar 2022, is this politics too?

Oh help! Oh no! The international politics of the Gruffalo with Professor Lee Jarvis What sort of world do we live in? Are threats to our survival real, or invented? Who has power, and from where does it derive? On whom, or what, can we rely to keep ourselves safe? Such questions are at the heart of disciplines such as International Relations and Politics. They have animated philosophers and theorists for centuries. And, in this session, we will be exploring such questions for ourselves through a critical reading of Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo, which has rather a lot to teach us, I suspect, about international politics.

Should we fear China? with Dr. Ra Mason We are constantly being told that China is rising (or has risen), and is increasing its influence on the international stage. Is this a positive or a negative? Should we be happy that China is boosting economic growth around the world and balancing against the power of the United States? Or should we be more concerned that China remains an authoritarian state with little regard for democracy or human rights?

Prof pwns Youtubers? with Professor Alan Finlayson Research from 2018 found that in the previous year 43% of 18-34s had watched politically-related videos online compared to 15% of over-55s. In other words, students don’t learn about politics from books anymore but from people talking on You Tube. Is that true? What political videos do you watch online? Is all of this a fantastic development in the democratisation of political culture? Or is it the beginning of the end of the culture of literacy which made free, equal and rational government seem like a good idea? Tl;dr: everything about politics you saw on You Tube was wrong.

Trump University with Dr. Michael Frazer Join our resident Noo Yawka Dr. Michael L. Frazer (Lecturer in Political and Social Theory) in attempting to interpret Trump and the state of American politics today. What effect is Trump having on the American political system of checks and balances? Can the American constitution survive being made great again?

Politics Taster Sessions
As part of Transitions Week, we are running some special taster sessions with some of the academics who will teach you during your time here at UEA. No preparation is needed. Just come along, and get the chance to meet some of staff – in some informal, fun and interactive sessions.

Listening, not looking: the importance of sound & music to society with Professor John Street It is often assumed that we understand and engage with the world through what we read and what we see. But, according to Jacques Attali, this is a mistake. ‘The world’, he wrote, was ‘not the beholding. It is for hearing. It is not legible, but audible’. In this session, we ask whether Attali is right, by looking at (listening to!) the ways in which sound – as music, as noise, as silence - changes us and our world.

The Handmaid's Tale: Screening and Discussion, with Dr. Helen Warner Bruce Miller's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's classic novel tells the story of a totalitarian New England where fertile women are kept prisoner in reproductive servitude. Despite being written nearly 35 years earlier, the story resonates with contemporary audiences and is often used as a touchstone in contemporary debates about women's and LGBTQ+ rights. This session includes a screening of the pilot episode and invites lively discussion on the relationship between popular culture and contemporary social and political issues.

The Politics of Football? with Dr. Toby James In recent times some scholars have tried to establish something called a sub-field called the 'Political Economy of Football'. Are they just trying to talk sport when they should be doing more serious things? Or is there something actually seriously political about football? When Pep Guardiola talks about Catalonia, is this politics? When FIFA decides to hold the World Cup in Qatar 2022, is this politics too?

Oh help! Oh no! The international politics of the Gruffalo with Professor Lee Jarvis What sort of world do we live in? Are threats to our survival real, or invented? Who has power, and from where does it derive? On whom, or what, can we rely to keep ourselves safe? Such questions are at the heart of disciplines such as International Relations and Politics. They have animated philosophers and theorists for centuries. And, in this session, we will be exploring such questions for ourselves through a critical reading of Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo, which has rather a lot to teach us, I suspect, about international politics.

Should we fear China? with Dr. Ra Mason We are constantly being told that China is rising (or has risen), and is increasing its influence on the international stage. Is this a positive or a negative? Should we be happy that China is boosting economic growth around the world and balancing against the power of the United States? Or should we be more concerned that China remains an authoritarian state with little regard for democracy or human rights?

Prof pwns Youtubers? with Professor Alan Finlayson Research from 2018 found that in the previous year 43% of 18-34s had watched politically-related videos online compared to 15% of over-55s. In other words, students don’t learn about politics from books anymore but from people talking on You Tube. Is that true? What political videos do you watch online? Is all of this a fantastic development in the democratisation of political culture? Or is it the beginning of the end of the culture of literacy which made free, equal and rational government seem like a good idea? Tl;dr: everything about politics you saw on You Tube was wrong.

Trump University with Dr. Michael Frazer Join our resident Noo Yawka Dr. Michael L. Frazer (Lecturer in Political and Social Theory) in attempting to interpret Trump and the state of American politics today. What effect is Trump having on the American political system of checks and balances? Can the American constitution survive being made great again? The greatest ever session where you get to critique (sad) or acclaim (greatest ever) the Trump administration. Come ready to participate.

Politics Taster Sessions
As part of Transitions Week, we are running some special taster sessions with some of the academics who will teach you during your time here at UEA. No preparation is needed. Just come along, and get the chance to meet some of staff – in some informal, fun and interactive sessions.

Listening, not looking: the importance of sound & music to society with Professor John Street It is often assumed that we understand and engage with the world through what we read and what we see. But, according to Jacques Attali, this is a mistake. ‘The world’, he wrote, was ‘not the beholding. It is for hearing. It is not legible, but audible’. In this session, we ask whether Attali is right, by looking at (listening to!) the ways in which sound – as music, as noise, as silence - changes us and our world.

The Handmaid's Tale: Screening and Discussion, with Dr. Helen Warner Bruce Miller's adaptation of Margaret Atwood's classic novel tells the story of a totalitarian New England where fertile women are kept prisoner in reproductive servitude. Despite being written nearly 35 years earlier, the story resonates with contemporary audiences and is often used as a touchstone in contemporary debates about women's and LGBTQ+ rights. This session includes a screening of the pilot episode and invites lively discussion on the relationship between popular culture and contemporary social and political issues.

The Politics of Football? with Dr. Toby James In recent times some scholars have tried to establish something called a sub-field called the 'Political Economy of Football'. Are they just trying to talk sport when they should be doing more serious things? Or is there something actually seriously political about football? When Pep Guardiola talks about Catalonia, is this politics? When FIFA decides to hold the World Cup in Qatar 2022, is this politics too?

Oh help! Oh no! The international politics of the Gruffalo with Professor Lee Jarvis What sort of world do we live in? Are threats to our survival real, or invented? Who has power, and from where does it derive? On whom, or what, can we rely to keep ourselves safe? Such questions are at the heart of disciplines such as International Relations and Politics. They have animated philosophers and theorists for centuries. And, in this session, we will be exploring such questions for ourselves through a critical reading of Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo, which has rather a lot to teach us, I suspect, about international politics.

Should we fear China? with Dr. Ra Mason We are constantly being told that China is rising (or has risen), and is increasing its influence on the international stage. Is this a positive or a negative? Should we be happy that China is boosting economic growth around the world and balancing against the power of the United States? Or should we be more concerned that China remains an authoritarian state with little regard for democracy or human rights?

Prof pwns Youtubers? with Professor Alan Finlayson Research from 2018 found that in the previous year 43% of 18-34s had watched politically-related videos online compared to 15% of over-55s. In other words, students don’t learn about politics from books anymore but from people talking on You Tube. Is that true? What political videos do you watch online? Is all of this a fantastic development in the democratisation of political culture? Or is it the beginning of the end of the culture of literacy which made free, equal and rational government seem like a good idea? Tl;dr: everything about politics you saw on You Tube was wrong.

Trump University with Dr. Michael Frazer Join our resident Noo Yawka Dr. Michael L. Frazer (Lecturer in Political and Social Theory) in attempting to interpret Trump and the state of American politics today. What effect is Trump having on the American political system of checks and balances? Can the American constitution survive being made great again?
