This just in in news of the delightful. In honor of the amazing female philosopher Ruth Barcan Marcus, CUNY is hosting a conference that celebrates women working in the philosophical traditions Marcus has so heavily influenced. The organizers (two graduate students – Rachel McKinny from CUNY and Jessica Keiser from Yale) are women. The speakers are all women. The chairs are all women. The claim that women just aren’t interested in ‘techy’ philosophy is once again counterexampled so hard it’s funny.
Here’s the program:
Karen Lewis (Barnard/Columbia)
chair: Jessie Munton (Yale)
Sun-Joo Shin (Yale)
What is Special about Diagrammatic Reasoning?
chair: Ashley Atkins (Princeton)
Maya Eddon (UMass-Amherst)
Fundamental Properties of Fundamental Properties
chair: Zee Perry (NYU)
Delia Graff Fara (Princeton)
‘Romanov’ Sentences are no Problem for the Predicative Theory of Names
chair: Lisa Miracchi (Rutgers)
I can’t think of a more wonderful way to honor Marcus’s memory. This has totally made my day.
