Research seminars and reading groups
The Department of Philosophy at King's College London is a lively research environment, with many active research seminars and student-run reading groups happening every week during term time (and often during the holidays too!) Our seminars and reading groups are primarily aimed at postgraduates and above, but are generally open to all. For further information about any of these groups, please email the convenor.
KCL Philosophy Blog
The KCL Philosophy blog is an online platform for current research, debates and events taking place within the Department.
In general, reading groups are open to all postgraduate students and staff, although many groups are also open to and welcome undergraduates.
Before attending your first meeting, it is a good idea to email the convenor.

London Mind Group
The London Mind Group is an intercollegiate University of London group featuring read-ahead meetings where postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers can share their work. Once each academic term they also host an invited guest for a more traditional, non-read-ahead meeting. More information can be found here.
