The Philosophy session runs from 5:15 to 6:30, in Main 117. Given the number of papers and the time constraints, it looks like we’ll have to limit each speaker to a total of 10 minutes for presentation and questions. This is speed philosophy!

Justin Solum, “A Conversation on ‘The Cool'”
Alex Tarbet, “Ancient Winds: The Sophistry of Aristophanes”
