Senior Postgraduate Seminar 10-11
This seminar is open to all research 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. (The year traditionally starts with a member of staff.) A hand-out, abstract or draft of the paper is usually circulated in advance. Anyone from outside the department wishing to attend should email Rosanna Keefe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Time: Wednesdays 3.10-5.00pm.
Venue: The last seminar will be in Jessop Building, SR 116
Afterwards we retire to a nearby pub.
