Early Career Epistemology Workshop, supported by a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award (BARSEA), at the Philosophy Faculty, University of Cambridge, UK on 25-26 February, 2017.

Keynote speakers:
Rae Langton (University of Cambridge)
Timothy Williamson (University of Oxford)

The goal of this workshop is to bring together early career researchers (including advanced postgraduates, postdocs, junior lecturers, etc.) who carry out research in epistemology (formal, informal, or applied). A central aim of the workshop is to give researchers working in different areas the chance to meet each other, make new contacts, and exchange ideas.

In recent years, formal approaches to epistemology have become increasingly popular. Careful formal research can provide a much richer understanding of epistemological problems than informal epistemology alone. Yet formal approaches remain somewhat rare in a variety of fields of traditional, informal epistemology. Very little formal research exists, e.g., on the semantics of ‘knowledge’-attributions, feminist epistemology, or on statistical problems in evidence law.
