Every year, the Department of Philosophy hosts a Book Launch and Spring Party to celebrate major publications by faculty members, bring closure to one academic year, and welcome the possibilities of a new one. Once again in 2023, we wish to acknowledge the extensive academic output by members of the department.
This page aims to highlight and celebrate the publications in the past academic year (2022–2023) not only of faculty members but also of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and lecturers. We are extremely proud of the thoughtful, wide-ranging work both junior and senior Philosophy colleagues have brought into the world. Take a look, listen in, and congratulations again to all the authors.
