London Graduate Philosophy Workshop

London Graduate Philosophy Workshop
2 March 2018, 10.00am - 5.00pm
Research Training
Bloomsbury Room, G35, Ground Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

At many large professional conferences like the APA, PSA, BSPS, and the Aristotelian Society Open Session, scholars are typically given 20-25 minutes to present their research. Moreover, this is the amount of time one often has to give a job talk when being interviewed on the UK job market. This workshop will give grad students an opportunity to share their work with faculty and peers from other colleges, while also sharpening one’s ability to present work at professional conferences and on the job market.
