Calvin and GVSU’s philosophy conference is a two-day event held each year to promote excellence in philosophy. In addition to keynote lectures from leading contemporary philosophers, the conference provides students an opportunity to present and receive rigorous feedback on their own work in the form of formal comments from a peer and Q&A. 


Participants: The conference is free of charge and open to the public. 

Papers: Accepting papers on all topics in philosophy.
Contact: For further questions about the conference, contact Zach Tenney: tenneyzATmail.gvsu.edu
