The Minnesota Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities will host a workshop on Feminist Philosophy and Formal Logic April 19 – 22, 2018.

We have space to accommodate up to four graduate students and early career PhD non-presenting participants. Exceptional applications from advanced undergraduate students will also be considered.

The workshop will cover lodging for three nights, meals, and reimburse up to $400 towards travel for non-presenting participants.

Non-presenting participants are expected to read the workshop papers in advance (papers will be distributed in early January 2018), and be active participants in workshop discussion of the papers. Papers will be revised in light of workshop discussion and (subject to the usual refereeing process) collected in a volume of Minnesota Studies for the Philosophy of Science. Non-presenting participants will also have the opportunity to submit contributions inspired by the workshop (but are not required to do so).
