About the Conference

The SFU Philosophy Alumni Conference was started by the Philosophy Department in 2011 to highlight the success of our  philosophy alumni (BA, BA Honours, MA, and PhD), and provide current students with an opportunity to hear from graduates who are now working professionally in philosophy. Students are encouraged to attend (cost is free), especially those interested in furthering their study of philosophy.
