Let's talk about philosophy and art

The School of Philosophy and Art History runs an exciting programme of events throughout the year.

The Philosophy and Art History Research Seminar meets weekly in term on Thursday afternoons to discuss a paper by a visiting philosopher, art historian, or a member of our academic staff. We also host our annual graduate conferences, organised by our postgraduates, alongside a variety of other workshops and symposia, who also run their own regular seminars and reading groups.
