The Chambers Philosophy Conference Series is a series of annual conferences held at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Each conference is largely funded by the Robert R Chambers Research Funds. Each year's conference is directed by a faculty member (or set of faculty members) in our department and is focused on a topic of significant philosophical concern.
