20 June 2019, Workshop "Bilateral approaches to meaning"

Date: Thursday 20 June 2019
Time: 18:00
Location: ILLC, Amsterdam
Deadline: Friday 15 February 2019

Traditional semantics gives the meaning of expressions in terms of conditions on one kind of primitive (e.g. truth, assertion, belief). Bilateral approaches hold that the meaning of expressions is characterized in terms of conditions on two, usually opposite primitives (e.g. truth and falsity, assertion and rejection, belief and disbelief). Recent years have witnessed the independent development of a variety of bilateral approaches to analyze phenomena such as negation, epistemic modality and counterfactuals, from both a proof-theoretic and a model-theoretic perspective. The workshop will bring together researchers from either perspective in order to provide a venue for the systematic exploration of commonalities, differences and potential interactions between such approaches.

Invited speakers: Maria Aloni (ILLC, Amsterdam), Teresa Marques (Logos, Barcelona), Greg Restall (Melbourne) and David Ripley (Monash).

We invite submissions from both a proof-theoretic and model-theoretical perspective, and especially welcome contributions addressing possible interactions between the two perspectives. One presentation slot will be reserved for early career researchers (PhD students and researchers who obtained their PhD no later than 5 years after the submission deadline).
