As an undergraduate student at a liberal arts college, there are few opportunities to develop relationships with graduate students and professors outside one’s home institution. This summer, I was lucky to attend the Caribbean Philosophy Association Summer School through a grant I received from SAAB at Lewis & Clark. CPA Summer School is a non-credit weeklong experience of transdisciplinary lectures, talks on graduate school and the job market, and 1:1 meetings with well-known scholars.

This summer focused on the theme “Shifting the Geography of Reason.” and featured a wide range of scholars. I will present my experience at the conference, give a brief overview of the different arguments presented each day and the philosophy behind CPA, explain how this experience will shape the duration of my undergraduate studies, and lay out other opportunities Philosophy majors can participate in.
