Departmental Colloquium

The Department of Philosophy’s regular colloquium series is one of the oldest in Canada. The series welcomes speakers to give well-attended talks every Thursday during the Fall and Winter semesters.

Additionally, the Department and its cognate units often host special colloquium series, workshops, and conferences – sometimes jointly with other departments, and either in addition to or as part of the regular colloquium series. The Department also sponsors the Colloquium in Legal and Political Philosophy, hosted by the Faculty of Law, and is home to a number of reading groups, some of which discuss work in progress by visiting, external faculty.
