Spring Seminar Series

BPPA Spring Seminar Series 2023

One more year, we are delighted to present our Spring Seminar Series.  The 2023 edition runs every Tuesday 6-7pm (BST) from May 16th-July 4th.

Every week, a philosophy grad student from a British university will present their research at each seminar, and a discussion with the attendants will follow. We want it to be an inclusive, supportive space in which ideas, arguments and views surrounding the topic of the talk are shared and debated. The aim is that not only the presenter will benefit from the session—all participants should!

If you would like to attend, please sign up here. You will receive a Zoom link on the eve of every session.
