And We Would’ve Gotten Away With It, If It Hadn’t Been for You Meddling Kids…

Due to a number of logistical challenges that we were not able to overcome, we will not hold this year’s Pittsburgh Area Philosophy Colloquium as originally scheduled on September 8th. Those challenges would stifle our efforts even on other dates, so we have elected not to reschedule and have put the conference on hiatus until next year.  

You can expect the PAPC to return in September of 2019 with a full slate of working groups, a regular set of concurrent afternoon sessions and a keynote speaker. (The keynote is already booked, and we are particularly excited about this – details to follow later this year).  The deadline should be around June 1, as usual.  Check back here, on PhilEvents, and everywhere fine philosophy conferences are advertised in a few months.

Keynote Speaker for the 2016 PAPC

We’re pleased to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Dan Selcer of Duquesne University.  He has been a friend and generous contributor to the PAPC in the past, and he’s a welcome addition to the program this year.  Dan’s research covers numerous figures in early modern philosophy and science, though his interests also extend to contemporary continental thought.  A title for his talk will be made available here some time in late spring or summer.
