The Department is pleased to announce that we will be starting a tradition of hosting a distinguished lecturer in Philosophy, either yearly or biennially. This lecturer will spend a week with us, presenting a public lecture for the university community, a more research-oriented colloquium (with a pre-circulated paper) for the department, and another seminar for faculty and graduate student questions.
We are thrilled that Rae Langton has agreed to be our first Distinguished Lecturer and that she will be visiting with us during the week of January 28th, 2019. Professor Langton is Knightbridge Professor and Chair of the Philosophy Department at the University of Cambridge, as well as a Fellow of the British Academy.
More details to be announced shortly.
