Dear UC Davis Philosophy alumni and friends,

It was an almost back-to-normal 2021-2022. The campus returned to in-person instruction, and life in our wing of the Social Sciences Building resumed. We brought in five visiting speakers spread out over the year in our colloquium series. On April 11 and 12, we heard from another five speakers at our annual Davis Philosophy Extravaganza (DEX), organized by Professor Adam Sennet, which was back in action after two years off due to COVID. Our graduate students hosted the annual Berkeley-Stanford-Davis graduate philosophy conference (BSD) on April 23; and on the same day, as a part of Picnic Day, they organized and staffed an “Ask a Philosopher” booth. This drew a lively crowd for hours of thought-provoking conversations, as graduate students rotated in and out of the booth.
