Faculty of Philosophy


This term, we're very happy to be returning to in-person sessions with the exception of our first meeting. The full term-card can be found below. If you'd like to join our mailing list for future updates, please email Tom McClelland at Meetings will be 4:00 till 5:30pm on alternate Thursdays starting 14th Oct. In person meetings will take place at Selwyn College, which is adjacent to the Sidgwick Site. The first two sessions will take place in The Diamond and the fourth in the Chadwick Room. Although the venues should be big enough to accommodate us all, for Covid reasons there is an upper limit. In the event that attendees exceed 16, we will give priority to people who have RSVP'd to the announcement of that session. So if you're very keen (and very organised!) do RSVP, but if not please do come along anyway as you'll most likely still get a seat.
