From 11–13 September this online student conference will address philosophical issues in science and society, and the interactions between them.

Science & Society is finally here! On Friday 11 September and Saturday 12 September, we are inviting everyone, especially graduate students, to join the first LSE graduate conference. We have some exciting speakers lined up on zoom and ample opportunity for networking and academic discussions on our conference discord.

We have set up a discord server just for you, to make this conference feel more personal, almost like an in-person conference! This is a space for you to hang out during the whole conference – at lunch, before, during and after the presentations, and in the evenings. You can use it to get to know each other, talk about the presentations, discuss philosophy, chat about careers, have lunch and coffee together and whatever else you’d usually do at an in-person conference. Please feel free to join the discord server from Thursday, 8 pm, to make sure that everything is working.

If you have not used discord before, please download discord here (it is also possible to access it via a web browser, and even without an account, although we do advise at least setting up an account).

Then, you can join the conference discord via the following link:

We are a group of postgraduate philosophy students at LSE who have been organising an online conference around the theme of Science and Society. Given the ongoing crisis a great many postgraduate students are experiencing a sense of both personal and intellectual isolation. It is our view that this is an opportunity to address both of these. The conference will be a chance to present your work and explore and critique the work of others as well as a chance to socialise with your fellow philosophers from across the UK and beyond.
