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.

This conference is organised by the Institute of Philosophy at the School of Advanced Study in partnership with the Graduate Tutors of the philosophy departments at KCL, UCL, Birkbeck and LSE.
