We aimed to hold the Centennial Conference of the Creighton Club. The conference was originally delayed by the onset of the pandemic but we now had a very successful conference on April 8-9 at Colgate.
The centennial conference helped to build and sustain the philosophical community in central and upstate New York by providing a opportunities for in-person interactions over the course of the 1.5 day conference in April. There were also a large group of graduate students in attendance who benefited from the networking opportunity, particularly given the high-profile philosophers that came to the centennial conference.
