Teaching

Before arriving at Pomona College, Julie Tannenbaum taught ethics at UCLA, UCSC, and Cal State Northridge. In her courses students tackle a wide range of ethical questions ranging from what sort of character should we aim to inculcate in ourselves and those we care for to whether we are responsible for harms we accidentally caused. Her courses emphasize the importance of being in conversation with others who have personal experiences different from one’s own, arguing in a nuanced and logical manner, and the skill of raising challenges in a productive rather destruction manner.
