London Warwick Mind Forum meeting

The next London Warwick Mind Forum meeting will take place at UCL on the 8th of November 2018.


The network consists of graduate students of the University of Warwick, King's College London, University College London, London School of Economics and Birkbeck, who share an interest in the mind. The forum will consist of four talks of 30 minutes each followed by respective responses of 10-15 minutes and Q&A sessions. You can check out previous editions here:


To apply to give a talk, please send an abstract of 200-300 words ready for anonymous review to by 23:59, 24th of October. The abstracts will be reviewed by members of one of the other institutions participating in the forum. Selected speakers will be notified by the 27th of October and will need to provide a full ~3000 words paper by the 30th of October, which will be sent to a respondent. All topics and all kinds of approaches pertinent to the study of the mind as broadly construed are suitable. Since one of the aims of the forum is to share work in progress, you do not need to have a polished paper in order to present.


The Warwick philosophy department offers contributions towards travel expenses, if you wish to attend the conference.


To register your interest in acting as a respondent, or if you have any questions, please contact the Warwick-based organiser Maria Corrado (on the email address given above).
