Conference Info & Accessibility

This page will continue to be updated as more information becomes available.

We are committed to having an accessible and inclusive conference, and encourage anyone with concerns about barriers to participation to contact us at torontophilgradconf@gmail.com.

We will arrange teleconferencing options such as Skype for those who may experience barriers to physical attendance; we will help arrange or reimburse childcare expenses; we will accommodate dietary needs; we will have private rooms available for quiet spaces, breastfeeding, prayer, etc.

The majority of the conference will be held at the Department of Philosophy in the University of Toronto’s Jackman Humanities Building. This location has accessible gender-neutral bathrooms on the same floor as the conference room. We will try to arrange accessible parking.

Light breakfasts and lunch will be provided at no cost to participants on both days of the conference, with a reception one evening and a dinner the next. We are still finalizing meal providers but plan to be able to provide vegan and vegetarian options.

Limited travel stipends will be available, and conference organizers can help arrange for presenters to stay with members of our graduate department to offset costs.

For further information on accessibility and accommodations, please feel free to email our conference organizers, Michaela Manson or Elena Rabinoff-Derksen, at torontophilgradconf@gmail.com.
