As announced at the last annual conference, for the foreseeable future we will not be holding a conference every year but every two years. However, in the alternate year, a conference will be hosted by a university outside the UK on 'Hinge Epistemology' (a new direction in epistemology influenced by Wittgenstein's On Certainty). The first conference on Hinge Epistemology took place last year at the University of California, Irvine and was so successful, we thought it would be a good idea to offer the concept to other universities. The 2nd Hinge Epistemology Conference will be a 2-day conference, hosted by the Wittgenstein Seminar at Panthéon-Sorbonne University in Paris on 1-2 July 2019, in collaboration with the University of Hertfordshire (UK) and Irvine University, California. The conference will include

 

·       5 invited lectures:​

 

·       a mini-symposium on Hinge Epistemology by  Annalisa Coliva (Irvine), Daniele Moyal-Sharrock (Hertfordshire) and Duncan Pritchard (Irvine)

·       5 shorter contributions, selected from a call for papers to be issued in October

Our thanks go to Professor Sandra Laugier and the Wittgenstein Seminar at Panthéon-Sorbonne University for hosting the conference.
