Ninth annual Edinburgh graduate epistemology conference

This year, we are delighted to host Jason Baehr (Loyola Marymount University) and Mona Simion (University of Glasgow) as the keynote speakers.

The two day conference will consist of four talks by graduate students and one keynote speaker per day. Graduate speakers have 30 minutes to present their paper. Every graduate speaker will be appointed a respondent from Edinburgh or a neighbouring university. This response plus Q&A will be a further 30 minutes.

We welcome submissions from all areas within epistemology. The conference aims to continue the tradition of creating a collaborative environment for graduate students with wide-ranging interests in epistemology to share their work, and to receive constructive feedback from both their peers and experts in the field.
