The Department of Philosophy invites all to join a special public lecture by Professor Jennifer Saul from the University of Sheffield, UK.

"Old stock Canadian" has been said to be a dogwhistle: a phrase that's meant to allow a politician to communicate something problematic in such a way as to avoid alienating potential audiences. Dog whistling is widely used in political campaigning, especially to communicate about race. Professor Saul’s paper explores the challenges that dogwhistles pose for democracy, but also for standard ways of approaching philosophy of language.
