Hot Take: Branding & Passion with Prof. Ethan Raker

Wednesday February 28, 2024
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Lino Lounge
6303 NW Marine Drive

The Graduate Student Council of Sociology (GSCS) is introducing a new event series: HOT TAKES. We will invite one faculty member each month to share their hot take on an aspect of academia with graduate students in our program.

The objective is two fold:

  1. For grad students to meet and network with faculty members, which may be particularly useful if you are looking for committee members or just want to get to know our professors.
  2. For grad students to learn how to thrive as a sociologist, beyond classroom-skills.

Dr. Ethan Raker will share his hot take on branding & passion on Wednesday, February 28 at 1pm in Lino Lounge. What role should passion play in your scholarly identity? How do we create and use a personal brand? Do these factors matter?

Coffee will be provided! Please bring any questions you may have.
