This year is 100 years since the creation of the PPE degree. To mark this occasion we will be holding two panel discussions. To coincide with the unusual situation we find ourselves in these discussions will be focused around the current global pandemic. The first of these discussions is titled 'How did we get here?' and asks our panel to talk about the political, philosophical and economic circumstances that contributed to today's situation.
The panellists for this event are Natalie Gold (1994), Helen Hayes (1993), Robert Peston (1979), Annie Williamson (2014) and Yuan Yang (2008). The moderator will be Alex Kaiserman (2007).
