Shipka Speakers Series

The Dr. Thomas and Albert J. Shipka Speakers Series brings internationally respected scholars to Youngstown State University to present lectures on a variety of topics. Speakers come each semester and the lectures are open to the public, with attendees having an opportunity to ask questions of the speakers after the talk. Speakers present on a variety of topics, often representing a voice that is missing in everyday discussions. The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies is thankful to Dr. Thomas Shipka and The Philosophy Circle for longtime contributions in support of the Dr. Thomas and Albert J. Shipka Memorial Speakers Fund, which pays for this lecture series.
