Announcing the 5th annual Penn-Rutgers-Princeton Social Epistemology Workshop!   

The workshop aims to bring together scholars of social epistemology to gain familiarity with each other's work and encourage future collaboration. The workshop will be April 8-9, 2017 at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.  

We welcome proposals for presentations of work in social epistemology, broadly construed, from graduate students and faculty in any discipline.  Proposals can be of works-in-progress, and proposals should be suitable for a 20-30 minute presentation.  Possible topics include but are not limited to: rational responses to peer disagreement, knowledge by testimony, deference to experts, group beliefs and their justification, division of cognitive labor, epistemic arguments for democracy, and institutional design.  Graduate students are especially encouraged to submit.  Funds to support graduate student travel may be available, pending institutional support.  

Please send a blinded abstract of roughly 2 pages (no more than 600 words) as a PDF to [email protected] with the subject "PRPSEW5 Abstract" by January 25th, 2017. The program committee aims to notify participants by February 15th about the decision.
