In March 2011, McGill co-hosted a bilingual philosophy conference open to the general public for the second year running. Hosted in collaboration with other universities in Montreal (Concordia, UdeM, and UQAM), the conference has had much success, and we are committed to continuing this success in March 2012 and in future years. Please email the coordinator of the Philopolis Team at McGill at if you'd like to volunteer.


We hold a colloquium about once each semester to give undergraduate students the opportunity to present and discuss their work with fellow students, professors, friends, and the general public. In Fall 2011, the colloquium series will be entering its fourth year.
