The Departmental Graduate Seminar is a student-organised seminar providing an opportunity for all Warwick philosophy graduate students, and occasionally students from other universities, to present their work to a general philosophy audience. It’s also a great chance to meet and socialise with fellow graduate students, and discuss each other’s research.
Talks take place every other Wednesday from 4:00pm to 6:00pm in room S0.17 (Term 2) in the Social Sciences Building, and are normally followed by a short (i.e. 5–10 minute) response from another student, questions and discussion chaired by a PhD student or member of the faculty, and drinks at The Dirty Duck from around 6pm. All PhD, MPhil and MA students are encouraged to attend, and faculty members and visitors are very welcome.
Notes for Presenters
Talks should be between 30 to 45 minutes long and may be circulated in advance, in which case the paper should be forwarded to the seminar organiser or chair no later than 9am the preceding Monday. Alternatively, speakers may wish to chair a discussion on a philosophical topic or reading of interest, or some other format suitable for group presentation.
A list of seminars for the current academic term is listed below. To reserve a slot, please e-mail Giulia Luvisotto and Chris Noonan with your preferred date(s) and a provisional title or topic for your talk.
