Philosophy Department Speaker Series

Since  2013, the Philosophy Department hosts an annual workshop  on new work in philosophy, funded by the Ichabod S. Spencer Foundation.  Typically held in the spring term, each workshop features a small group of scholars focusing on a focused topic in philosophy. Our 2013 inaugural workshop’s focus was ‘Race and the Enlightenment’, our 2014 workshop’s focus was ‘The Ethics of Forgiveness and Revenge’, and our 2015 workshop’s focus was ‘Critical Reflection and Belief’.  The 2018 workshop was on “Physician Assisted Suicide/Medically Assisted Dying”.
