From 25 to 29 August 2014, the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Groningen will host two co-located summer schools with a common theme: Epistemology and Cognition. One of the summer schools will focus on contemporary philosophy and is co-organized with the Department of Philosophy of the University of Bristol. The other summer school will have a historical focus and is co-organized with the Department of Philosophy of the Radboud University Nijmegen.
The summer schools are intended for graduate students (master's and PhD), post-docs and early-career researchers in philosophy. The combination of systematic and historical focus makes these co-located summer schools particularly attractive for students and junior researchers who approach philosophical discussions in a global, non-fragmented way, and for whom contemporary debates and historical investigations can be fruitfully combined. Participants can follow exclusively one of the two tracks, or mix-and-match tutorials from both tracks according to their interests.
Each of the two summer schools will consist of tutorials by 5 lecturers, and a few slots for student presentations (in both cases, parallel sessions for the systematic and the historical tracks). In addition, we will have keynote speakers common to the two events.
> Coordinator: Dr Catarina Dutilh Novaes
> Application deadline: 1 July 2014
