29 June - 1 July 2012, Themes from Charles Travis: Language, Perception, Mind and the Early Analytic Legacy, University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK

Date: 29 June - 1 July 2012
Location: University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK
Costs: £65 full rate / £35 students

The aim of this conference is to explore the consequences of Charles Travis’s position for the possibility of systematic theoretical investigation into human psychology and linguistic understanding.

Our intention is to open up a forum for debate and discussion of the current status of Travis’s work in relation to those issues upon which his ideas have exerted the most influence, such as the semantics-pragmatics interface, perceptual disjunctivism, and (more generally) theories of representational content, each of which have come to dominate current research in analytic philosophy. The conference will bring together a group of distinguished philosophers who have engaged directly with Travis’s work over the years.

For more information and registration, see the conference website at http://www.uea.ac.uk/phi/eventsnews/events/charles-travis. We may be able to offer some student bursaries.
