Humphrey Colloquium, Philosophy Slam Highlight Eventful Fall Semester
The 21st Annual Steven Humphrey Undergraduate Philosophy Colloquium took place on October 27, 2023.
Students from around North America shared their philosophical ideas & arguments. Dr. Sara Protasi (University of Puget Sound) delivered a keynote address, emissaries from the University of Kentucky discussed graduate school in Philosophy, and the editors of Stance undergraduate philosophy journal offered a workshop on publishing one's research. The 2023 issue of Stance includes two papers that were initially presented at the Humphrey Colloquium, and papers from this year's colloquium will be eligible for the 2024 issue.
The Philosophy Department is grateful to Steven Humphrey for his ongoing, very generous financial support of the Colloquium.
