University of Sheffield’s graduate philosophy conference
Understanding Value is an annual conference for postgraduates and recent PhDs dedicated to the philosophical discussion of value. The theme’s breadth means that the conference always has an extremely diverse range of talks from a number of different areas of philosophy, making for highly stimulating discussions and an exciting event. Talks can be from any area of philosophy, theoretical or applied, and any tradition within philosophy, including interdisciplinary projects, so long as they are clear and related to the nature of value.
Our keynote speakers this year are James Lenman (Sheffield), Jennifer Corns (Glasgow), and Ulrike Heuer (Leeds).
Thanks to the Analysis Trust, there will be a small number of bursaries available for partial reimbursement of accommodation costs for postgraduates based outside of Sheffield. Details will be available at the conference.
Thanks to the Society for Women in Philosophy UK, we expect there to have a small amount of money to cover childcare costs for speakers. Please contact the conference committee for more information. The call for abstracts is now closed. The programme will be available soon.
