Over the years a handful of UCLA’s Comparative Literature graduate students have collaborated intensely with the Humanists@Work initiative, which has aimed to gather students for critical dialogues about the future of work and the University. Many of these Comparative Literature grads were featured at this last event, including Helga Zambrano, Dana Linda, Rebecca A. Lippman and Adrienne Posner.
A dedicated participant in previous workshops, Dana Linda participated as a panelist on “Stories from the Field,” and shared insights about her experience transitioning from the PhD to her current role at the Venture Capital firm Menlo Ventures.
This year Rebecca A. Lippman co-organized and co-facilitated a two-part session called “So What Do You Do? Communicating Across Industry, Government, and Academia” with Kelly Anne Brown.
