Conferences & Speakers
Each year, the department hosts several conferences. These include the "in-house"
conference which features work from WVU faculty and students (student presenters
receive a cash prize for having their work selected), a national undergraduate
philosophy conference, and the Mid-Atlantic Philosophy of Language Workshop. In
addition, throughout the year, the department brings in notable philosophers from
around the world to give public lectures. Some of these lectures are tied to larger
annual events such as Applied Ethics Day. Up-to-date information about departmental events can be found here.
