Colloquia

Colloquia Series

The department colloquia series consist of approximately six lectures per academic year, given by prominent philosophers from around the country and around the world. In addition, members of our department occasionally present their own work. The series offers students a chance to experience professional philosophy talks, and perhaps more importantly, to participate in the question period following the talk, in which the speaker responds to comments and discusses his/her work with students and members of the faculty. The schedule for each year is posted on this site as it becomes available.
