Oxford University's student society for

the Modern Greats: Philosophy, Politics and Economics



Dear all,

As we come out of a period of restrictions caused by the pandemic, we have the opportunity both to draw lessons from the past year as well as to make the most of the chance to return to in-person events, which are now on offer. Going into Michaelmas Term 2021, we hope to utilise the virtual format which we have now perfected, as well as draw on the benefits of having live speakers with us here in Oxford in order to provide our audience and members with educational resources outside of the traditional curriculum. In doing so, we aim to continue providing a space where ideas from philosophy, politics and economics (PPE) can be shared and discussed, as a way of benefitting students of the subjects at the University of Oxford and beyond.


With a diverse nature of events and speakers, from the most abstract kinds of philosophy to the more practical sides of politics and economics (some on the most pressing topics of our time), we hope that we can offer something for everyone. If not, we encourage the community of interested students here at Oxford to get involved and make their own contribution to the society by joining our committee. On top of that, we also aim to bring the community of current and former PPE students closer together by hosting a platform for them to connect with each other, as well as assisting PPE-ists on the career side of things by offering informative career events.


So, be sure to keep up to date with the society and our events by liking our Facebook page – feel free to check out videos of our past events on that page too – and keep an eye out for our term card. There, you will find the range of talks, interviews, and exclusive seminars we plan to host with people at the front of the fields of philosophy, politics, and economics this term. I hope to see you there! 


Very best wishes, 


Louis Finegan

President, MT21
