The Graduate Student Conference
Check out the Philosophy Department's
Each year, the Philosophy Graduate Student Association organizes a conference around a central theme in contemporary philosophy. Traditionally, a high-profile keynote is invited to give a lecture on the conference topic. In this way, the conference not only provides a venue for graduate students to present their work, but also offers them a unique opportunity to interact with an eminent scholar in their filed of interest. This year's conference's theme is Metaphilosophy. See details here.
