Topic areas


The Blog of the American Philosophical Association’s Teaching and Learning Video Series is putting forward a call for submissions for teaching philosophy through  videos. These can be ads, shorts, clips from movies and TV, or stand up comedy to name a few. The series focuses on the use of humorous videos but this is not required. Accepted submissions will be published on the Blog of the American Philosophical Association.

The Teaching and Learning Video Series has previously published submissions by Full, Associate, and Assistant Professors at University of Mississippi, Florida International University, Florida Gulf Coast University, University of Arkansas (Little Rock), University of Minnesota (Twin Cities), Southern Methodist University, and San Diego State University. We have also published work by Postdoctoral Fellows at Harvard University, University of Nevada, Ohio State University, and Durham University.
