Midwest Epistemology Workshop

The 13th annual Midwest Epistemology Workshop

  • October 11-12, 2019
  • Bailey Library, 228/229 Andrews Hall
  • University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Supported by

  • The Chambers Research Fund
  • The College of Arts and Sciences
  • The Department of Philosophy

MEW aims to advance interest in epistemology by organizing an annual workshop for the presentation and discussion of current work in the field. MEW also aims to establish a sense of community among epistemologists in the region that stimulates new research, improves its quality, and facilitates its dissemination.

To this end, the workshop will be organized to encourage as much discussion and interaction as possible among the participants. Although workshops will typically be hosted by a college or university in the Midwest, all philosophers with an interest in epistemology are invited and encouraged to attend.

The Friday workshop banquet and Saturday dinner are free for all participants who register prior to October 4, 2019.
