Postgraduate Seminar 2016-17

Students at a PG Seminar

This seminar is open to all graduate students in the Department of Philosophy. It runs throughout both semesters, and the students run their own series over the summer. Each week a student presents a paper, followed by discussion. A handout, abstract, or draft of the paper is usually circulated in advance. Anyone from outside the department wishing to attend should email the Director of Graduate Studies, Paul Faulkner.
