Our Academic Events

The Society's core mission is to provide a space of critical, yet respectful and rigorous academic dialogue and debate. Our events therefore serve as a forum for the exploration and investigation of the ideas, concepts, research programs, and theoretical systems needed for the fruitful study of UAP and related issues - political, social, cultural, and philosophical. Our events engage UAP studies from a broad range of established disciplinary perspectives, besides being also spaces where the very question of "UAP Studies" as an autonomous field unto itself is carefully explored.
