University of Warwick
This year’s MindGrad conference will take place on the 3rd-4th of December, at the University of Warwick, UK; our guest speakers are:
- Prof. Michael Tye (University of Texas)
- Dr. Lucy O’Brien (UCL).
MindGrad is a postgraduate conference in the philosophy of mind, broadly construed; in previous years, we have been pleased to accept papers on topics as diverse as the mind-body problem, the location of bodily sensations, and personal identity in the context of dreams. We will consider well-written submissions, from graduate students, on any topic broadly related to philosophy of mind.
Papers should be suitable for presentation in 40 minutes, and prepared for anonymous review. Please use the following link to submit your paper, as a PDF, via the EasyChair Conference System:
The deadline for submissions is October 14th
The authors of papers selected for presentation will hear from us by October 30th at the latest. Travel and accommodation subsidies for graduate speakers will be available.
We are grateful for support from the Mind Association and the Aristotelian Society.
Origins of Mind is a forthcoming volume in the Springer Book Series in Biosemiotics.
Abstracts (of approximately 150 words) are solicited by September 15, 2011; formal invitations to contribute to the book will be sent by October 1. The final book manuscript will be sent to Springer in June 2012.
All enquiries and abstracts should be sent to Liz Stillwagon (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Origins of Mind will address a question that is fundamental to both science and philosophy: how and why did organic mindedness come to exist in the natural world? Researchers in the life and mind sciences will be invited to contribute papers that present or critique either comprehensive theories on the origins of organic mindedness, or accounts of the origins of specific cognitive capacities, e.g., mental representation, meaning-making, language and other forms of symbolic communication, moral behavior, creativity, etc.
If you already submitted an abstract for the book proposal, you do not need to submit anything at this time. The book’s table of contents will be decided, and formal notification of inclusion in the book will be emailed, by October 1.
