Practical Philosophy Seminar
The seminar takes place on Tuesdays from 12:15 to 13:00 (although the room is booked until 14:00 if more time is needed), in Georg Morgenstiernes hus, 4th floor, room 452 (unless noted otherwise). The seminar is an arena where the members of the Practical Philosophy Group can get feedback on work-in-progress, give a talk or discuss topics of common interest.
Presenters are expected to submit a title and a short abstract at least a week in advance. Those who want to send out a paper for read ahead must distribute it to the list the Wednesday before the presentation/discussion on the following Tuesday, but they should not assume that everyone in the audience has read it beforehand.
The slots are open for the Practical Philosophy Seminar during Fall 2020. If you want to sign up (and we encourage you to do so!) please send an email to Alejandra Mancilla (email@example.com). Due to the Corona situation, it is probable that the meeting will be conducted in Zoom.
