    Dear Sir /Madam,
    It seems that the Society of Christian Philosophers is just confined to the USA.There does not seem to be an UK branch and so this means that all conferences are held in the USA.Will your conference and speakers be put on youtube so that those of us interested in the conference could have access to the addresses?
    yours sincerely,
    Don Langford

    Presently, the three divisions of the SCP are located in the US, though if you look at the ‘Officers and Committees’ page you’ll see that we have a number of international initiatives. Each conference is run by volunteers. In the past, some of them have made the keynote addresses available online. You would need to contact the local hosts to see if that is part of the plan for the 2017 Midwest SCP.
