On June 15-16, 2020, the Philosophy of Language and Mind (PLM) Network will organise a master class with Prof. François Recanati (Collège de France, Institut Jean Nicod). The event will take place at the University of Barcelona, Spain, and is being organised by Dr. Michele Palmira (UB, LOGOS/BIAP).

Students and recent doctoral degree recipients (within three years of the degree at the time of submission) are invited to submit abstracts of papers to be presented at the master class. Papers may be submitted on any of the topics on which Prof. Recanati has worked, including context-dependence in language and thought, the semantics/pragmatics divide, mental files, speech act theory, immunity to error through misidentification.

Up to 9 submissions will be selected for presentation. Each presenter will have 50 minutes for presentation and discussion with Prof. Recanati and the other participants. On the first day Prof. Recanati will also present new research.

To apply to be a participant, please submit an anonymised abstract of no more than 1000 words (a short bibliography may be appended in addition to the 1000 words). Both the abstract and the body of the email should contain the title of the presentation (so that the anonymised abstract can be matched to the name of the contributor). The abstract must be submitted as a PDF document attached to an email sent to the following email address: Questions may be directed to Dr. Michele Palmira at the same address.

Up to 4 of the 9 presentation slots may be reserved for participants affiliated with, or who have degrees from, PLM institutions.

The deadline for application is 28 February, 2020.

There is no charge for participation; however, participants will have to fund their own travel to and living expenses in Barcelona. Lunches on both days and dinner on the first evening (June 15) will be provided.

The PLM is a consortium of European philosophy departments and research centers that are especially strong in philosophy of language and philosophy of mind. Please see the PLM website for more information:
