PPE in a Time of Pandemic

PPE in a Time of Pandemic

PPE in a Time of Pandemic is a series of panels featuring prominent experts in social and political thought grappling with the implications of living and thinking through these extraordinary times.

It is our hope that these moderated panels will provide a means to promote intellectual community in trying times, to supplement educational programming now that the university has moved online, and to establish a prominent public forum for timely and informed philosophical conversations about life in the shadow of the coronavirus.

The PPE Program would like to thank Simone Gubler (University of Nevada, Reno) and Ryan Doody (University of San Diego) for organizing and facilitating this series.
