Graduate Student Conference in Epistemology


The purpose of the University of Miami Graduate Student Conference in Epistemology is to facilitate the exchange of ideas among graduate students and current major figures in epistemology as well as to foster an interdepartmental community of philosophers interested in epistemology.   The conference is held annually and features a keynote address by a major figure in contemporary epistemology, several invited papers from promising philosophers in the field, and a number of selected graduate student presentations.  Each year the conference highlights a specific theme or range of topics.  The annual call for papers invites graduate students to submit a paper on the annual theme or in any area of epistemology.  Graduate students whose papers are selected for the conference are provided with accommodations for their stay in Miami.
