  1. CONGRATULATIONS!

    You’re about to start an incredible journey.

    My colleagues and I in the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies (PPL) will be with you all the way.

    Welcome Week at UEA is all about settling in, making new friends and getting to know the university and the city. This week’s events will ease you into student life and give you a taste of what’s on offer at UEA.

    In PPL we stand for three things:

    People: PPL isn’t only a workplace and a classroom. It’s a community of people. We share a common goal – understanding ourselves, the world and how to live in it.

    Possibilities: Our staff are both teachers and world-class researchers, pushing the boundaries in their fields, opening up new possibilities for a better world. We want you to make discover new possibilities too, growing your understanding and finding out what you really think.

    Life: University isn’t just about work. It’s about life. And you are in a great place to live. Outside the classroom you can attend events with some of the world’s greatest thinkers, writers and artists. There’s also a world-class art gallery and gig venue on campus. Plus all kinds of opportunities in radio and film, music and dance, charity and politics, both here and abroad. Seize these opportunities and you will have experiences which shape your life and set you on paths you didn’t even know existed.

    Also, did you know that you can take a non-credit language module for free each semester throughout your degree with us? So if you have ever wanted to pick up some Japanese or perhaps improve your French or German then this could be the perfect opportunity!  If you’re interested, then please email ulp@uea.ac.uk or visit our website at https://uealanguageprogramme.org/daytime-classes  to learn more and apply for a course!

    As you travel on your journey, do talk with us. We’ll help with any challenges you face, and we’ll celebrate your victories with you.

    We can’t wait to get to know you.

What matters most to you? Come to this interactive workshop, where you will: debate the key issues affecting your cohort; come up with demands and a slogan; make placards and march round campus. Can a revolution happen in an hour and a half? Probably not, but we’ll give it a go.

Can Nigel Farage or Donald Trump say whatever the f**# they want?  We are often thought to value free speech, after all.  Or do politicians have special responsibilities not to engage in hate speech? In this seminar, you’ll have the chance to discuss hate speech, free speech, and the special privileges and responsibilities of politicians in liberal democracies.

With Dr Eitan Tzelgov.
It seems that democracies are "under attack" and that other, less open, forms of government are gaining power.   Is that true? How can we tell?  In this session we look at real data from across the world and discuss whether we are actually witnessing a decline in the level of democracy.

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.

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?

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.

Join our resident Noo Yawka Dr. Michael Frazer 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.

Can Nigel Farage or Donald Trump say whatever the f**# they want?  We are often thought to value free speech, after all.  Or do politicians have special responsibilities not to engage in hate speech? In this seminar, you’ll have the chance to discuss hate speech, free speech, and the special privileges and responsibilities of politicians in liberal democracies.

With Dr Eitan Tzelgov.
It seems that democracies are "under attack" and that other, less open, forms of government are gaining power.   Is that true? How can we tell?  In this session we look at real data from across the world and discuss whether we are actually witnessing a decline in the level of democracy.

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.

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?

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.

Can Nigel Farage or Donald Trump say whatever the f**# they want?  We are often thought to value free speech, after all.  Or do politicians have special responsibilities not to engage in hate speech? In this seminar, you’ll have the chance to discuss hate speech, free speech, and the special privileges and responsibilities of politicians in liberal democracies.

With Dr Eitan Tzelgov.
It seems that democracies are "under attack" and that other, less open, forms of government are gaining power.   Is that true? How can we tell?  In this session we look at real data from across the world and discuss whether we are actually witnessing a decline in the level of democracy.

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.

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?

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.

Can Nigel Farage or Donald Trump say whatever the f**# they want?  We are often thought to value free speech, after all.  Or do politicians have special responsibilities not to engage in hate speech? In this seminar, you’ll have the chance to discuss hate speech, free speech, and the special privileges and responsibilities of politicians in liberal democracies.

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.

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?

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.

Can Nigel Farage or Donald Trump say whatever the f**# they want?  We are often thought to value free speech, after all.  Or do politicians have special responsibilities not to engage in hate speech? In this seminar, you’ll have the chance to discuss hate speech, free speech, and the special privileges and responsibilities of politicians in liberal democracies.

With Dr Eitan Tzelgov.
It seems that democracies are "under attack" and that other, less open, forms of government are gaining power.   Is that true? How can we tell?  In this session we look at real data from across the world and discuss whether we are actually witnessing a decline in the level of democracy.

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.

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?

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.
