SPA AGM and Conference [next week]: Edinburgh 7&8 December; info. and register for dinner

Dear Scottish Philosophers,

The SPA AGM and Conference is coming up next week on Thursday/Friday 7 and 8 December in Edinburgh.  The conference program is below (with a few minor updates).  If you would like to attend the conference dinner (likely cost: £15 – £20), please email me at by Tuesday 5 December. The dinner location will be Namaste Kathmandu (17 Forrest Rd).  If you would simply like to attend the conference, it would be great if you could let me know, but don’t feel pressure, and do feel free to simply turn up on the day.  Note: all Scottish PG students welcome!

Patrick Todd (Secretary)
