The 11th Annual Ancient Philosophy Society Conference

The 11th annual meeting of the Ancient Philosophy Society at Sundance, Utah was a great success.  Thanks to the generous hosting institution, Utah Valley University, and to Michael Shaw and the UVU Honors program, the Ancient Philosophy Society gathered together for a full and philosophically rich five days in Utah’s Wasatch mountain range.

The APS Facebook page as a number of links to blog posts, images and other resources related to the conference, but I thought I would gather a few resources here as well.  I invite others who have written about or posted artifacts surrounding our 11th annual conference to link to those resources here in the comments section.

I have also embedded a slideshow with some of the pictures posted to Flickr of the event:
