Join us for a luncheon and an engaging fireside chat and the debut of the GradFUTURES Podcast featuring conversations with Ann Kirschner, a 1978 graduate alumna with a Ph.D. in English and Sarah-Jane Leslie, a 2007 graduate alumna with a Ph.D. in Philosophy and former Dean of the Graduate School.
Associate Dean Eva Kubu will be in conversation with Hellen Wainaina, a PhD student in the English department, and the executive producer of the GradFUTURES podcast. Prior to coming to Princeton, Hellen was the producer of the Sewanee Review Podcast and GradFUTURES is so fortunate to have her on board!
