We have decided to schedule three Flash! philosophy events for this semester. Think of these as fun and possibly irreverent mini conferences. Students are encouraged to give a ten-minute presentation on some idea, which could range from profound to silly. Past presentations have included “The Teleology of Beard Growing”, “Categorical Randomness”, “Farts: A Transcendental Inquiry”, and “The Phenomenology of the Cool”. Or you can come just to listen and make goofy comments. If you have an idea you wish to present, please send along a title at least three days in advance to justin_solum [at], or to charlie.huenemann [at]

The scheduled dates and places are as follows:

Wed Jan 29         Main 006             5:00 – 6:30
Tues Feb 18         Main 006             5:00 – 6:30
Thur Mar 27        Main 207             4:30 – 6:00
