The Senses: The 17th Annual Graduate Student Philosophy Conference
Philosophy Program, The Graduate Center, City University of New York
April 25th and 26th 2014
Keynote Speakers: Tim Bayne (University of Manchester) and Fiona Macpherson (University of Glasgow)
Conference Organizers: Zoe Jenkin (CUNY), Kate Pendoley (CUNY), and David Neely (CUNY)

The conference seeks to provide a two-day forum for the presentation and discussion of excellent graduate student work in philosophy, with a special focus on the topic of the senses. The senses play a crucial and pervasive role both in our everyday experience and in debates across diverse areas of philosophy. Such debates concern issues in perceptual and cognitive architecture, consciousness, aesthetics, and epistemology, among others. Our keynote speakers will be Tim Bayne (University of Manchester) and Fiona Macpherson (University of Glasgow).
