Summary :

One-day event on philosophical enquiry in schools at the University of Leeds.

Conference aims and themes This one-day event at the University of Leeds will feature keynote speakers, presentations, demonstrations, and workshops by undergraduate and postgraduate students who teach and research philosophical enquiry in schools. We are also interested in related work from the philosophy of education, and empirical or theoretical work in education. The Conference provides an opportunity for both undergraduate and postgraduate students across the UK to present their academic work in the field of philosophy with children, and to demonstrate their practical skills in facilitation to their peers.  

A Call for Papers will be issued shortly. Registration for attendance the conference programme will be available in late April.

Accessibility: The conference aims to be as inclusive as possible within the limits of our budget and venue. We hope to be keep registrations costs to a minimum, and to be able to provide at least a partial subsidy on travel and subsistence costs for students travelling from outside Leeds. The conference rooms are fully wheelchair accessible via the main entrance, with an accessible toilet nearby, and there is a hearing assistance loop available.

Sponsorship: We wish to acknowledge the generous financial support the School of PRHS has given the conference, without which the event would not be possible.

Conference organisers: Grace Robinson, Teaching Fellow, School of Philosophy, Religion and the History of Science, Leeds and Elizabeth Watkins, MA Student, School of Philosophy, Religion and the History of Science, Leeds
