UnterGang: The Undergraduate Philosophy Club
UnterGang seeks to provide an atmosphere of intellectual stimulation, conducive to the development of undergraduate students serious about submitting to the rigors of critical philosophical discussion. Pluralist in orientation, UnterGang is open to all voices and perspectives. Our intent is to focus and support student interest in philosophy here at the University of Oregon by offering a focal point for undergraduate activity.
UnterGang aims to offer students ample opportunity to share questions, concerns, and ideas, as well enable undergraduates to articulate their needs to the Philosophy Department. Besides organizing Philosophy Club meetings, UnterGang also alerts students to philosophical events at the U of O and throughout the Northwest, and arranges luncheons and meetings with visiting scholars whenever possible.

Call for Papers: Undergraduate Philosophy Club Conference
The Undergraduate Philosophy Club Conference is planned for Saturday, May 10, 2014, 10am-3pm. This conference is one of the highlights of intellectual activity in the Philosophy program at the UO, and it offers a great opportunity to present and discuss the excellent research in all areas of philosophical inquiry currently conducted by our Undergraduates. This event is open to all perspectives, traditions, and authors within philosophy. Our own Mark Alfano will give the keynote address. Faculty and Grads in Philosophy will join you for the conversation – and some good food – on May 10.
