GSIP Annual Conference Information
Each year the Graduate Students in Philosophy (GSIP) work together to organize a conference based on a topic and paired keynote voted on early in the year. While the President and Vice President of GSIP are the ones chiefly involved in organizing the conference itself, any graduate student can submit possible conference topics and keynotes as well as help review submissions. These conferences bring together a wide array of submissions from across the world and have hosted many brilliant keynote speakers.
Any questions about GSIP conferences should be directed to the current President, Sila Ozkara, or Vice President, Jeff Lambert, of GSIP.
