S-ANU Meetings

S-ANU work-in-progress meetings in philosophy of biology were run by PhD students and their supervisors from the University of Sydney and the Australian National University. Postdoctoral Fellows and Visiting Fellows from both institutions also attended. S-ANU was intended to provide a supportive environment for mainly postgraduate researchers to receive feedback, to build an intellectual community in Australian philosophy of the life sciences, and to foster new collaborations. This event series ended in 2017.
