2018 Graduate Conference in Philosophy

All Day
on Friday, March 16, 2018
725 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215 Room 326
Do modern day academic philosophers have an active role to play in non-academic society? Do academic philosophers have a duty to engage in activism? How can an academic philosopher effectively cultivate a socially conscious public media presence? These quandaries, and others like them, have occasioned The Society for Applied Philosophy and Boston University to present BU’s Third Annual Graduate Conference in Philosophy. This conference will feature two keynotes addresses: one by Professor Lynne Tirrell of the University of Connecticut (until recently at UMass Boston), and one by Professor Kieran Setiya of MIT.
