Our home department, the Department of Languages, Philosophy, and Communication Studies, is hosting an undergraduate colloquium on Friday, April 26th, from 4 to 6 pm. This is an event in which undergraduates can present papers they have written in their classes or on their own. In the past we have had two or three sessions devoted to philosophy, and they have been a lot of fun, and good experiences for the students presenting their papers.
I am a bit late in getting this notice out, but here are the deadlines. If you want to present a paper at the conference, please email to me your paper, or at least a short description of it, by noon on April 5th (that’s Friday of next week). If you would like your paper to be considered for the “Best Paper” Award, then you must submit the paper itself, and not just the short description of it. My email address is charlie(dot)huenemann(at)usu(dot)edu.
Your paper should be 5-7 pages or so; the idea is that you should be able to present it (either read it or talk your way through the material) in about 15 minutes, and then participate in 10 minutes of discussion. It can be on any topic in philosophy.
