2019 Philosophy Tennessee Value & Agency Conference

The Tennessee Value and Agency (TVA) conference has been running annually since 2012.  It has attracted some of the most active philosophers on topics revolving around value and agency and has featured as keynotes some of the most prominent philosophers of our time. This time we aim to attract faculty from a wide spectrum of social and political sciences and involve an equally diverse set of presenters. This coming year’s TVA aims to bring to campus prominent keynotes who are game-changers not only in their field but also across disciplines.  The theme for TVA 2019 is “Obstacles to agency?”
