Ryerson Philosophy Colloquium

We are excited about this year’s Ryerson Philosophy Colloquium taking place on Wednesdays every two weeks (Sept 10th, 24th; Oct 8th, 22nd; Nov 5th, 19th; Dec 3rd) at 8:00 pm. The Colloquium is the opportunity for the graduate philosophy students to share their philosophical interests by giving a talk or presenting a paper to an audience of their peers. The Colloquium also offers the chance for the Ryerson community at large to come together to do some philosophy, discuss debate relevant topics and ideas, and figure out how to apply them in every day life. All are welcome and you do not have to be a philosophy student to attend.

Each talk will be 30 minutes long followed by 10-15 minutes of Q&A. We encourage talks that are engaging and accessible to a wide audience. The topics vary from week to week: some speakers present a paper they are working on, while others choose to give a more informal talk about anything that fascinates them outside of their academic work. Think travel experiences, love, art, what philosophy means to us etc. Most of us think philosophically about everyday things and some of the most profound observations and insights come from the mundane.

The list of the previous talks will be posted soon. The location of the first colloquium of the term (Sept 10th) will be announced soon as will the permanent location for the Colloquium for this term if there is to be one.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact

We look forward to seeing you at these events both as speakers and audience members!
