Previous Meetings

On this page you will be able to access an archive of posters, papers, recordings, video and audio from previous meetings. The purpose of this archive will be to maintain a constant record of the activity of the White Rose Philosophy Postgraduate Forum, whilst also providing a useful resource to current and future students within the catchment of the White Rose.

It is the intention that this page be populated both with the written submissions from speakers, but also their responses, in addition to video and audio recordings of their contribution to White Rose events.
