Colloquium & Special Lectures

About the Colloquia

The Department of Philosophy's colloquium series takes place every Friday afternoon. It is an eagerly anticipated forum where faculty and students have the opportunity to develop and present work and to engage in lively philosophical exchange. Each colloquium is attended by faculty, graduate students, as well as interested faculty from other departments and universities. Faculty will present in-progress papers,  and graduate students are encouraged to present their theses.

The colloquia are held every Friday beginning at 3:30 pm  in Room 1130 of the Marion McCain Building (unless otherwise indicated). During the first hour a paper is presented. In the second hour, questions and discussion take place. 

If you are interested in being on the mailing list or wish additional information please send your request to dalphil@dal.ca
