New Philosophy Colloquium

The colloquia are intended to strengthen the community of VU philosophers and to enhance the visibility of their research activities for colleagues, students, and on some events for non-academic audiences. Most VU philosophers are affiliated with CLUE+, and in particular with its fourth Research Cluster: Knowledge Formation and Its History. By bringing together philosophers, students, other members of CLUE+, and the general public, the Philosophy Colloquium Series aspires to create an interdisciplinary research culture and encourage fruitful interaction between students and academics with various backgrounds.

We host three different kinds of events:
1.    Colloquium talks by external speakers, on selected Wednesdays in the afternoon, followed by drinks (4 per year).
2.    Colloquium talks by internal speakers, on selected Thursdays around lunchtime, preceded by lunch (4 per year).
3.    Public lectures by external speakers, prominent philosophers whose work is of interest not only to the philosophical community, but also to the general public as well. These are evening lectures, with no fixed weekday, followed by drinks (2 per year).
