Philosophy Training Seminars

This is not so much a single module as a series of seminars. Some of them are required for particular groups. You are also very welcome to come any of the sessions at any time.

All sessions are 1-2pm on Wednesdays unless otherwise noted. Most (but not all) are in Hicks F24.
