26 July to 1 August 2015, Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students, Munich, Germany

Date: 26 July to 1 August 2015
Location: Munich, Germany

The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is organizing the 2nd Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students, which will be held from July 26 to August 1, 2015 in Munich, Germany. The summer school is open to excellent female students who wish to specialize in mathematical philosophy.

Since women are significantly underrepresented in philosophy generally and in formal philosophy in particular, this summer school aims to encourage women to engage with mathematical methods and apply them to philosophical problems. The summer school will provide an infrastructure for developing expertise in some of the main formal approaches used in mathematical philosophy, including formal epistemology, simulation techniques, the semantics-pragmatics interface. Furthermore, it offers study in an informal setting, lively debate, and a chance to strengthen mathematical self-confidence and independence for female students. Finally, being located at the MCMP, the summer school will also provide a stimulating and interdisciplinary environment for meeting like-minded philosophers.

The deadline for application is March 1, 2015. For more information, see http://www.mathsummer.philosophie.uni-muenchen.de/
