Welcome to the Philosophy Forum's OrgSync page - a page that we are "strongly encouraged" to populate for the sake of justifying receipt of funds from GSC! Given Emory's decision to move away from Blackboard, OrgSync will be the new home for student organizations (since Canvas is exclusively for academic courses). That means that, going forward, all FPF announcements and events will be hosted and issued from here. To stay up-to-date about upcoming events (and for the sake of our continued funding), please join us, get engaged, and RSVP for upcoming talks and events.

In addition to holding regular meetings of the Friday Philosophy Forum (FPF), The Philosophy Forum hosts an annual graduate student conference addressing various themes in the history of philosophy, and which has consistently attracted internationally renowned scholars to present its keynote address.

The events and activities of The Philosophy Forum are open to all, and everyone is welcome to attend. We meet most Friday afternoons in Bowden 216.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday afternoons!
