Carolina Seminar on Philosophy, Ethics, and Mental Health
The Carolina Seminar on Philosophy, Ethics, and Mental Health is a forum for building community, enriching education, and promoting research at the intersection of Philosophy, Ethics, and Mental Health. This speaker series aims to build upon and expand the existing community of collaboration that has been developed by the UNC Philosophy and Psychiatry Research Group. We encourage jargon-free and supportive discussions that will be accessible to participants with serious interest in the topics but come from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds. Invited speakers in the series present a work-in-progress or recently published paper that is the basis for a new project. The seminars aim to provide the speakers with feedback on their current research projects. At least half of each meeting is devoted to Q&A and general discussion. This series will consist of six speakers each academic year.
Please contact Dan Moseley, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information. These events are free and open to the public, but registration is required. Support from Carolina Seminars, the UNC Center for Bioethics, and the Departments of Philosophy & Psychiatry
