Open Minds XII: Student Philosophy Conference
|Dates:||2 December 2016 - 3 December 2016|
|What is it:||Conferences|
|Organiser:||School of Social Sciences|
We are pleased to announce our twelfth Open Minds philosophy conference. After a very successful decade as a conference for PhD students (and recently awarded PhDs), we are continuing with the expanded format introduced last year of including sessions devoted to papers from Undergraduate and Masters students.
Our goal is to provide a forum for discussing work done in analytic philosophy by aspiring philosophers at each of these early stages in their careers. From this, we hope that all who attend develop valuable philosophical skills and working relationships with other early stage philosophers. To this end we will also be running workshop sessions related to pursuing a philosophy as a career path; including guidance on how to apply for graduate courses and how to publish.
Keynote talks from:
Dr. Jane Suilin Lavelle (University of Edinburgh)
Dr. Catharine Abell (University of Manchester)
PhD: Lydia Farina, Pilar Lopez Cantero, Jack Casey
