The 2020 Eastern Division meeting is less than a week away. We hope you’ll join us in Philadelphia, PA, January 8–11!

Online registration is closed, but you can still register on site at the meeting. The registration desk will open at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, January 8. The on-site registration rates are $175 for APA members, $290 for non-members, and $90 for student members.

Department Chairs Network

The APA will host a special session for the Department Chairs Network (DCN), “Building Support for Philosophy on Campus,” on Friday, January 10, at 9:00 a.m. Panelists include John Corvino (Wayne State University), David Levy (SUNY Geneseo), and Sally Scholz (Villanova University). APA Executive Director Amy Ferrer will chair the session.

The DCN exists to discover and discuss issues of particular interest to philosophy department chairs, but DCN sessions are open to all. We encourage you to attend the session and to join the DCN.
