On Friday May 10 and Saturday May 11, there will be a two-day conference at the New School for Social Research, titled "Varieties of Intentionality." The conference will explore the question of whether there are multiple formats of mental representation and, if so, what, exactly, these formats are and how they should be distinguished. 

Friday May 10

1pm: Rachel Goodman (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee): Introductory Overview

1:30pm: Jake Quilty-Dunn (University of Oxford): On Elisabeth Camp's "Putting Thoughts to Work"

4:30pm: John Kulvicki (Darmouth College): On Jacob Beck's "Perception is Analog"

Saturday May 11

1pm: Jacob Beck (York University): On Jake Quilty-Dunn's "Perceptual Pluralism"

4pm: Elisabeth Camp (Rutgers University): On John Kulvicki's "Modeling the Meanings of Pictures" 

*The conference will have a slightly unusual structure: the presentations will all be about the other presenters' work, and will thus presuppose familiarity with that work. The conference website contains links to five essential readings that should be read ahead of the conference.
