Philosophy alumni

Welcome to the Philosophy Department's Alumni Page. We hope you will use this page to keep in touch with us.
Things may have changed considerably since you were a student here, so if you´d like to keep up with the current members of the Department, please visit our Academic Staff page.


Besides keeping you informed of what's going on in the Department, we hope this page will encourage you to let us know what you've been up to since leaving University. We hope to produce a regular Departmental Newsletter for alumni, which we will send out electronically via the University´s alumni list. (2012, alas, was an exception.)  If you would like to receive this newsletter and you think the University may not have your contact details, please contact us:

You can access the University´s main alumni site from this page. This University´s alumni page includes the "Sheffield Reunited" on line alumni directory, which is designed to help ex-students to keep in touch with one another. If you do not receive the University Alumni magazine, "Your University", use the site to update your details.

Centenary Celebrations

2010 was the Department´s centenary. We celebrated 100 years of philosophy at Sheffield at an event on 11 September. It included short talks from past and present members of the Department, and an opportunity for the alumni to look at what is new on the University campus, including a visit to the Department's new home in Victoria Street. The day provided a great opportunity to share memories of the Department over its long and successful past, and was much enjoyed by those who attended.  Photographs from the day can be viewed at Centenary pictures.


We have also produced a Departmental Timeline, to illustrate the growth of the Department over the preceding century and make a convenient record of the philosophers who have worked here over that time. You can download it from the right-hand side of this page.
