Welcome to the philosophy club blog. Hopefully everybody on the philosophy mailing-list can accept the invite sent out by Chelsey, which should give you authoring privileges.Feel free to post anything concerning upcoming events or news that people should know about.

There are a few things that should be mentioned right away:

(1) Weekly philosophy club meetings: Currently these take place Thursday nights at the Toad. Some folks have expressed interest in having the club-night moved to a different evening, an earlier time, and (perhaps) a different venue. Tentatively, John and I have been thinking that Wednesday evenings, starting anywhere from 6 pm on, would suit people better. If you think a different night, time, or venue would be more suitable, here is the place to let everybody know.

(2) Fall Invited Speakers: Please note the schedule posted by Chelsey (just follow the calendar link). There are many open Fridays, and we thought that it would be good to fill these up with student presentations or talks. If you are interested in giving a presentation or talk, then please choose an available Friday. Also, remember to check the calendar regularly for new events.

(3) Currently there is a big gap between the invited talks and the dinner/evening events, and we'd like to fill this time up with a reception. So, we are hoping that someone would like to volunteer to (i) reserve the senior common room (in UC) for the time between the end of the talk and dinner, and (ii) to get us all some punch and pie for those times.

Finally, make sure to check the blog often, as most of the information sent out via mass-email will likely be posted here as well.

If we've forgotten anything, let us know. Or just post it up.


John and Adam
