From the end of June 2018, the Performance and Politics international (PPi) research centre will be moving. Professors Jenny Edkins and Adrian Kear are leaving Aberystwyth University, and are working to re-establish PPi in a new home. The PPi Masters programme in Aberystwyth, the MA in Politics, Media and Performance, will not run in 2018-19, but keep an eye out for new developments in other institutions.
‘We would like to warmly thank all our colleagues, and especially our former colleagues, Professors Mike Pearson and Heike Roms, our External Advisory Board, and all our many Distinguished Speakers for all their wonderful support in developing research synergies across performance and politics since the research grouping was first established in 2007,’ said Professor Edkins. ‘Our postgraduate students, both on the MA and at doctoral level, have been an inspiration. We look forward to working with you again in new contexts in the future, and to further exciting developments in this important area of research.’
