Institute of Philosophy, Senate House, University of London

18th & 19th  November 2016

Graduate students are invited to apply for the 3rd PLM Masterclass. PLM (Philosophy of Language and Mind) is a network of philosophical centres, institutes, and departments in Europe.

The Masterclass will be held at the Institute of Philosophy, Senate House University of London, 18-19 November 2016. It will be devoted to the work of Timothy Williamson (University of Oxford). Eight graduate students will have the opportunity to present papers on Timothy Williamson’s work. Professor Williamson will comment on the papers and will also present new research.

Each student talk will be 30 minutes long, and will be followed by comments by Professor Williamson and a general discussion.

Participation in the Masterclass is of charge, but students will have to find their own funding support for travel and accommodation.

Applications are to be made by sending an abstract up to 1000 words of your proposed talk, together with a short CV, via this link

The deadline for application is 15 August, 2016. Please use pdf (preferred), doc, or docx, as your file format. Notifications regarding acceptance will be sent out at the beginning of October.

The Masterclass is organised on behalf of PLM by CeLL, The Center for Logic and Language, at the Institute of Philosophy, School of Advanced Study (University of London).

The other members of PLM include CLLAM, The Centre for Logic, Language, and Mind (Stockholm), Arché (St Andrews), Institut Jean-Nicod (Paris), the Department of Philosophy of CEU (Budapest), CSMN (Oslo), ILCLI (Donostia/San Sebastian), ILLC (Amsterdam), the Institute of Philosophy II (Bochum), LOGOS (Barcelona) and LanCog (Lisbon).

The purpose of the network is to further philosophy of language and mind broadly construed and to provide a platform for cooperation between members, primarily in research, but also in research training.

The first PLM Masterclass was organised in Paris by Institut Jean-Nicod, in December 2012, on the work of Dan Sperber; the second was organised in Stockholm by CCLAM, in June 2014, on the work of David Chalmers.
