Humphrey Colloquium

Steven Humphrey Undergraduate Philosophy Colloquium

The Steven Humphrey Undergraduate Philosophy Colloquium is an annual conference that brings together students from throughout North America. Student papers are well-attended and generate lively discussion; the colloquium ends with a prominent keynote speaker. The Colloquium is possible thanks to the generosity of Dr. Steven Humphrey.

The 2017 Humphrey Colloquium will take place on Friday, November 3, 2017 and we are delighted to announce that Professor Alyssa Ney (UC Davis) will be the keynote speaker. 

Funding is available for travel and accommodations.  The submission deadline for papers is September 29, 2017.  Papers should be prepared for blind review (author's name should only appear on a separate cover sheet), and should be no longer than 3000 words.  Submissions should be sent via email to, or they can be sent via postal service to David Owen, Dept. of Philosophy, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY  40292.
