Can philosophy help us during a global pandemic? Join us to discuss how philosophy can help us live well in the face of radical uncertainty and spiralling self-doubt.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Dr. Emma Farrell, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, UCD School of Education and Dr. Áine Mahon, Assistant Professor in Philosophy of Education, UCD School of Education will appear in conversation with Dr. Shane Bergin, Physicist and Assistant Professor in Science Education, UCD School of Education.
UCD: In Conversation is a weekly interview series featuring conversations with world-class academics and alumni leaders. Hosted on Zoom every Thursday evening, these lively, virtual discussions will focus on critical global challenges and offer insights for uncertain times.
The series will reflect UCD’s Strategy 2020-2024 ‘Rising to the Future’ which identifies four strategic themes to focus UCD’s contribution to global challenges. These thematic pillars will carry through the conversation topics: Creating a Sustainable Global Society, Transforming through Digital Technology, Building a Healthy World, and Empowering Humanity.
UCD alumni are invited to tune in from home and submit questions for a Q&A session at the end of each interview. Our community of over 288,000 alumni is more connected than ever and there is no better time for us to rise to the future and inspire transformational change.
