2021 Undergraduate Philosophy Research Conference

Tuesday April 13, 2021, 12:00 pm - Wednesday April 14, 2021, 5:00 pm

It’s that time of year again! Join us to learn about and celebrate the exciting research done by our undergraduates in philosophy. Look forward to insightful and probing presentations by the students on their current work, as well as to a keynote address by Professor Talia Mae Bettcher of California State University, Los Angeles. Dr. Bettcher’s presentation is titled “The Phenomenology of Illusion: Rethinking Trans Gender ‘Dysphoria.’” She describes herself as “an engaged philosopher who integrates critical reflection with tangible and meaningful action in our lived world.” She teaches and publishes in the areas of transgender studies, feminist philosophy, and queer theory.

Events will take place online between 12 noon, Tuesday, April 13 and 5 p.m., Wednesday, April 14, 2021. Register on Facebook.
