York University’s 2019 Undergraduate Philosophy Conference and Journal Launch

Jump to Comments

We are excited to announce Philosophia’s 13th annual undergraduate philosophy conference and journal launch!

Every year, Philosophia publishes and launches the Undergraduate Philosophy Student-Review: The Oracle. The Oracle is a student-run initiative that accepts pieces from all disciplines.

This year, the event will be held on May 22nd, 12pm-5pm, in the Senior Common Room at Vanier College (VC010).

We have 5 amazing presenters who have worked very hard throughout the academic year and put in a lot of effort preparing their works for the journal and conference! Topics include neuroscience+consciousness, free will, and memetics, along with some poetry and artwork that will be presented, and a keynote talk by Professor Alice Machlachlan titled, “Who’s Sorry, Whose Story? #MeToo and the Public Mea Culpa”.

This event is a great opportunity to meet students with similar interests, facilitate critical discussion, gain conference experience, and support your fellow peers!

There will be a full catering, $300 in prizes to be won, and free limited-edition copies of the journal will be distributed to all attendees!

Bring your friends and family to this amazing event. We look forward to sharing this exciting day with everyone!
