Work in Progress Seminar
Seminar for Philosophy PhD Students at University of Edinburgh
The Work in Progress Seminar, affectionately called the WiP, is a seminar for philosophy PhD students at the University of Edinburgh specifically designed for presenting work, be it a thesis chapter or conference paper, currently in progress. The seminar meets biweekly each semester, and aims to provide students with an opportunity for presenting and discussing ideas and receiving constructive feedback in a relaxing environment. We see the WiP not only as a forum for philosophical discussion, but, more importantly, as a community of colleagues and friends with a common passion for philosophical discourse. We encourage all philosophy PhD students at the University of Edinburgh, including visiting students, to present work in progress, and we encourage all philosophically-minded students and members of staff to attend, ask questions, share thoughts and criticism, and help build and foster our community.
Next Session: TBA for Autumn 2020
