The Department of Philosophy at Hamilton College invites submissions for
Philosophy, Film, and Television Undergraduate Conference
May 3rd, 2013
Increasingly, but also for some time now, philosophers are recognizing the complex philosophical themes and questions presented by film and television; this undergraduate conference aims to engage such topics. Hamilton encourages submissions from any philosophical perspective and poses no restrictions on the applicable film and television content.
