Being in the World
Do you wonder what it will be like, and what the possibilities will be, when you step into the world with your Philosophy degree? Do you wonder what the people you were studying philosophy with are doing now? Join us for Being in the World, a series where we interview UCLA Philosophy alumni, two new people each week.
For Spring term 2022, the sessions will be Thursdays, 6-7pm, on Zoom.
Our guests this Thursday, May 26th, are Ashley Feinsinger (PhD 2016), who is an Assistant Adjunct Professor at the UCLA Geffen School of Medicine, and Alison FItch (2018), who is on the research ethics team of 23andme.
Come along and find out what they do and how they got there. People who attend the zoom will be able to ask the guests questions, and you may also submit questions ahead of time here.
