Event description

The British Undergraduate Philosophy Society and British Journal of Undergraduate Philosophy are proud to present our 2014 Autumn Conference. The conference will take place from the 15th to the 16th of November at the wonderful Birkbeck College in London.

This year we are fortunate to present two illustrious keynote speakers: Baroness O’Neil and MM McCabe.

We will also have a host of interesting talks presented by some of the finest undergraduates in the UK.

Concurrent with our Autumn Conference will be the release of our next issue of the British Journal of Undergraduate Philosophy which will feature some of our presenters, more fantastic papers and some interviews with Philosophers.

Tickets will be on sale from Monday 6th of October on our website:http://www.bups.org/ forthcoming-conference/.

The prices will be as follows:
- Conference Attendance Ticket: £10
- Copy of the British Journal of Undergraduate Philosophy: £10
- Conference Attendance Ticket plus a copy of the Journal: £15
- Special half price offer for Birkbeck Students;
o Attendance ticket: £5
o Attendance plus Journal: £10

To encourage attendance of groups from universities we are running a special offer for this conference, if you organise a group of five people to get together we can offer you a discount of five tickets for the price of four!
We are a non-profit organisation and as such a conference ticket entitles you to entry to the conference and covers the cost of catering for the two day event which will include mid-morning coffee, tea and snacks, lunch and an afternoon coffee, tea and snacks (no one expects you to philosophise on an empty stomach!)

We hope that some of you will also join us for dinner on the evening of the 15th, we will book a nice (but affordable) restaurant in London and enjoy each-other’s (and perhaps the Baroness’) company. For those of you joining us from outside of London we will try to arrange a limited amount of spaces to stay with students at Birkbeck/in London at large. However these will be very limited and preference goes to speakers attending the conference, so apply early! E-mail our conference coordinator to register your interest: alienor.cros@bups.org
