Professionalization Panel: Expanding Career Horizons for Philosophy PhDs

Please mark your calendars for our panel “Expanding Career Horizons for Philosophy PhDs”!

We’ll have four PhDs in philosophy with us (either virtually or in person) to discuss the career trajectories that landed them in jobs that are partially or wholly outside the academy.  They’ll share with us experiences before, during, and after graduate school that set them up for their current positions, and some concrete things that you can do right now to prepare for a wide variety of careers.  Our panelists will be:

  • Christina Drogalis (Ph.D. Loyola Chicago), Core Instructor, Stanford Online High School
  • Ndidi Nwaneri (Ph.D. Loyola Chicago), Executive Board, International Development Ethics Association
  • Sean Petranovich (Ph.D. Loyola Chicago), Data Scientist & Part-time Philosophy Instructor, Metropolitan State University of Denver
  • Trevor Perri (Ph.D. Leuven), Philosophy Acquisitions editor, Northwestern University Press

The panel will take place on Wednesday, October 9, from 2:45-4:15pm in Information Commons 332 with ample time towards the end for a Q&A session.
