Call for Application

We welcome applications from women and members of other under-represented groups (including under-represented gender identities, races and ethnicities, people with disabilities, people from low income and non-academic family backgrounds) who want to specialize in mathematical philosophy. The school is targeted to students at an early stage of their philosophical careers – especially MA and PhD students – and will introduce them to a selection of core topics in mathematical philosophy.

The school will include structured lectures by the invited lecturers, exercise sessions, short talks by members of the MCMP, as well as more relaxed conversational settings for sharing ideas. There will be a chance for students to present their own work, by taking part in a poster session. We will also provide space for students to discuss their experiences of academic philosophy within a roundtable session. In addition, there will be an evening lecture on the topic of first-generation philosophers.
