Professor Kit Fine will use his Anneliese Maier Research Prize of the German Humboldt Foundation to finance a series of workshops on truthmaker semantics and related topics. The workshops will be organized by the Phlox research group under the auspices of Professor Benjamin Schnieder.
Imperatives: Worlds and Beyond, the second instalment of the series, will take place at the University of Hamburg on June 12th and 13th 2016. Thematically, the event will focus on alternative approaches to imperatives that go beyond the usual possible worlds approach.
Attendance will be free but participants are asked to register with the organizers.
Information concernig e.g. the titles of the taks and the events schedule will be publicised once they become available.
