What does cutting-edge research in philosophy look like? What are pressing and enduring questions it uncovers, and ways of addressing them? This event offers a taste. From enduring questions about the nature of morality and human experience, to urgent questions about how to overcome oppression, research conducted in Concordia’s Department of Philosophy reflects this diversity.
This workshop will provide you with some of the fundamentals in the interdisciplinary field of oral history.
