Open Minds XIII
|Dates:||2 August 2018 - 3 August 2018|
|What is it:||Conferences|
|Organiser:||School of Social Sciences|
Open Minds is a two-day conference which offers graduate students working in all areas of philosophy the chance to present their work and gain feedback in a welcoming and a friendly environment. With two parallel workshop streams running throughout the two days – ‘Applied Philosophy’ and ‘Theoretical Philosophy’ - our goal is to provide a forum for discussing work in analytic philosophy by aspiring philosophers at both Masters and PhD stages in their careers. From this, we hope that all who attend develop valuable philosophical skills and working relationships with other early stage philosophers. The event also includes workshops on pursuing both academic and non-academic careers, for those with a background in philosophy.
