BERGEN EARLY-CAREER MASTERCLASS ON LOGICAL EPISTEMOLOGY

University of Bergen, 28th-29th May 2020


Deadline: 22nd March 2020


Masterclass speakers:

·      Gila Sher (University of California, San Diego): Realistic Justifications of (evidence for and against) Logic

·      Michael Devitt (The Graduate Center, CUNY): Naturalism and Logic

 

Call for participation:

The philosophy department at the University of Bergen is pleased to invite applications for participation in an early-career masterclass on logical epistemology, with tutorials from both Gila Sher and Michael Devitt. Participants will also have the opportunity to present their own work in the philosophy of logic with a 30-minute presentation, and receive feedback from experts in the field.

Applicants should be doctoral candidates, or those within three years of obtaining their PhD. Applications should take the form of an anonymised 1,000-word abstract, plus a separate PDF containing personal details, including paper title, career stage, affiliation and email address, to be sent to benjamin.martin@uib.no by the 22nd March. All submissions will be blind refereed.

The masterclass has an associated fee of 1,000 NOK (roughly 100 EUR), and participants will need to organise their own travel and accommodation. We hope to be able to offer five bursaries worth 5,000 NOK (roughly 500 EUR) to talented candidates from under-funded institutions, subject to departmental funding. If you wish to be considered for a bursary, please indicate so and state your reasons for being considered (including funding status) within your email.

The masterclass immediately follows the Bergen Workshop on Logical Evidence, from the 26th-27th May, for which a separate call has appeared. Participants of the masterclass are welcome to attend the workshop for no fee.
