Brunch for Expat Women in Czech Science with Anna Tropia
29 November 2023, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Campus Hybernská, Hybernská 4, Prague
We would like to invite you to our Brunch for Expat Women in Czech Science, which we decided to organize in cooperation with Hyb4City. Our invitation was accepted by Anna Tropia Ph.D., Assistant Professor at the Department of Philosophy and Religious Sciences, Charles University, Prague.
We aimed to select an inspiring person who has managed to develop a successful career path, during which she has had to face challenges and overcome many obstacles associated, among others, with being a woman scientist who has chosen to pursue her scientific career abroad. She can thus be a role model for her colleagues who are at the very beginning of their own careers as international women scientists in the Czech Republic.
To guarantee a safe space, the event will not be open to the public and will not be audio-visually recorded.
Anna Tropia, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, Faculty of Arts, Charles University. In her research, she focuses on the History of Early-Modern Philosophy, Jesuit Aristotelianism, the history and tradition of the Aristotelian treatise On the Soul, the theory of Cognition, and the history of academical philosophical teaching (16th-17th centuries).
