The UC Davis Philosophy Department hosts a number of events each academic year. Below is a brief description of these activities.
The Philosophy Department presents a number of colloquia throughout the academic year. Speakers are drawn from international as well as American universities. Many of them are from campuses in the region, including UC Davis, where our visiting faculty customarily give a talk to the Department. The links to the left give names, dates, and titles of past colloquia since 1995. The Web pages covering the years from 1998 on since also contain digital photographs of nearly all of the speakers.
Workshops in the Philosophy Library most Friday afternoons to hear presentations of work in progress by department faculty and graduate students.
The Philosophy Department holds occasional philosophy conferences in which visiting speakers present their research. These conferences draw participants and audience members from many different institutions as well as from UC Davis.
Each year at the end of Spring Quarter, the Philosophy Department holds an awards ceremony, in which are awarded Departmental Citations for outstanding work by undergraduates and the Michael V. Wedin Teaching Award to graduate students who have distinguished themselves as teaching assistants.
