Brazil: The Third Epistemology Conference

Brazil in June will host some marvellous epistemology. Epistemology: The Third Brazil Conference will be in Porto Alegre, at PUCRS, from the 9th to the 11th of June. Claudio de Almeida (PUCRS) and I are the conference’s co-organisers. And we are honoured to announce that at present these are the conference’s speakers:

Jonathan Adler (Brooklyn College, CUNY)
Heather Battaly (CSU, Fullerton)
Anthony Brueckner (UCSB)
David Christensen (Brown)
Stewart Cohen (Arizona)
Claudio de Almeida (PUCRS)
Paulo Faria (UFRGS)
Richard Fumerton (Iowa)
Alvin Goldman (Rutgers)
Vincent Hendricks (Copenhagen)
Stephen Hetherington (UNSW)
Peter Klein (Rutgers)
Saul Kripke (CUNY)
Jennifer Lackey (Northwestern)
William Lycan (UNC, Chapel Hill)
Baron Reed (Northwestern)
Ernest Sosa (Rutgers)

An exciting group, I’m sure you’ll agree. And you would be very welcome indeed, if you wish to attend. (Porto Alegre is a pleasant place in June, similar in climate to Sydney — where I am based — at that time.)

For more details on the conference, please feel free to contact me, Claudio, or Rogel de Oliveira (the conference manager). (Claudio and Rogel will probably be more helpful on vital details than I will be. But I’ll do what I can.) Our respective emails are as follows: s.hetherington@unsw.edu.au ; cdeal@terra.com.br ; epistemology2010@yahoo.com.br .

If you are thinking of attending, note that you’ll probably need a visa. Consult the website of your closest Brazilian embassy or consulate.
