Denys Turner to speak at UAA Philosophy ConferenceThe philosophy department will host its 6th Annual Undergraduate Philosophy Conference April 8-9. This year, the conference theme is the philosophy of religion.

The conference will begin with a keynote address by Professor of Religion at the Yale Divinity School, Dr. Denys Turner, on Friday, April 8 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the UAA/APU Consortium Library, room 307. Turner's talk, "The Unknowability of God," will challenge both atheists and theists to confront the certainty of their claims that God either does or does not exist.  Instead of relying on certainty, Turner will encourage us to embrace the child-like wonder in asking questions about God from a different perspective. Turner's talk will be followed by discussion with the audience.

On Saturday, April 9 the conference will continue with student paper presentations. Several of the student papers will be focused on the philosophy of religion. The student paper presentations will take place from 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. in the Administration Building, room 204.

All events are free and open to the public. For more information, visit the UAA Philosophy department website or contact Stephanie Bauer at afslb@uaa.alaska.edu or (907) 786-4677.
