MA seminar: Subjectivity, Identity and Language

At the 2013 MA Seminar, graduate students in the Department of Philosophy presented papers concerning a range of topics with conclusions relevant to various academic fields. Philosophy majors in their final year were involved as 'guest-commentators'. The conference provided a valuable learning experience for first-year graduate students, providing them an opportunity to engage ideas with both professors and peers in a professional setting. This event took place on Saturday, April 6th, 2013 in the Florence Partridge Room, McLaughlin Library.
