windsorphilosophy.blogspot.com came about to meet a number of specific needs. We fully expect this forum to change over time as new needs arise in the region, but initially this blogspot will:
1. Act as a general information source regarding events in the region: Within the region Surrounding Windsor (including Michigan) we have a number of universities who frequently sponsor conferences, visiting speakers, round table discussion groups, etc. Frequently, the philosophically orientated in the region miss these noteworthy events because there is no central source for information about philosophy in the region. As these events arise, windsorphilosophy.blogspot.com will post the pertinent information about these events.
2. Provide a space for non-academically affiliated philosophers to continue to engage with academe: At the end of philosophy degrees, if a philosophy student does not pursue an academic career in philosophy it is extremely easy to loose touch with the field as well as the manner of questioning as a result of the lack of a critical community in which philosophical dialogue can occur. We offer this virtual space in order to provide a forum through which all can engage with the forms of critical dialogue particular to our discipline.
3. Let you know what philosophers specifically from the University of Windsor are up to now: We will periodically post stories and bios about philosophers who studied at the University of Windsor, detailing their current activities, accomplishments, and research projects.
4. Act as a means to specifically promote WPA events, Forums, Discussions, and activities: This loose knit organization holds a number of yearly events and would like to do more. It is essential that we get the word out and this blog will do just that.
So, if you are a philosopher in the Windsor region, please follow this blog. If you know about something going on within a two hour drive of Windsor, have a philosophical event you would like to promote or bring to our attention, or just generally have something to share, please engage with this forum. If there is anything you would like to see this blogspot do in addition to the above, please email email@example.com and we will do our best to meet your needs.
