Humphrey Colloquium

The Steven Humphrey Undergraduate Philosophy Colloquium


The Steven Humphrey Undergraduate Philosophy Colloquium is an annual conference that brings together students from throughout North America. Student presentations 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 Colloquium will fund the costs of travel and accommodations for the authors of accepted papers.

The 2018 Humphrey Colloquium will take place on Friday, November 2, 2018 and we are delighted that Dr. Kate Abramson from Indiana University will be this year's keynote speaker. Questions about the Colloquium should be sent to:
