The Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology is meeting in Charleston this coming Thursday-Saturday, and there are numerous Brains contributors on the program, including talks by Ken Aizawa, Shen-Yi Lao, Shannon Spaulding, Tad Zawidzki, and myself, and comments by Robert Briscoe, Felipe de Brigaard, Carrie Figdor, and Mark Phelan. (The entire program is available for download here — it looks great!)
Given this, and given the number of regular readers who are also on the program, we’re going to organize an unofficial gathering on Friday night, to give the great community that’s formed around this blog a chance to hang out in real life. It will be held from 9:00pm onwards at Closed for Business, which is located at 453 King Street (about 5 minutes’ walk from the conference hotel). The bar promises to be crowded, but someone will get there early to grab some tables, and if you tell them at the door that you’re looking for the Brains gathering, they will know where to send you.
If you know in advance that you plan to come, it would be great if you could leave a comment on the blog or on Facebook, or send me an e-mail, just so we have a good sense of how many people to prepare for. Thanks, and looking forward to seeing some of you soon!
