I’m sorry that the past few months have been light on content, but I’m happy to have some good news to announce about the future of the Brains blog.
First, I’m very grateful that Robert Briscoe and Kristina Musholt have agreed to assist the blog as Contributing Editors. Beginning this summer, Robert will manage our Mind & Language symposia, and Kristina will coordinate visits from Featured Scholars.
Second, and in that vein, two upcoming events:
- Beginning May 20, we’ll have a symposium on Philipp Koralus’ article, “The erotetic theory of attention: questions, focus, and distraction”, from the February 2014 issue of Mind & Language, with commentaries by Felipe De Brigaard, Chris Mole, Catherine Stinson, and Sebastian Watzl.
- Beginning September 15, Kristin Andrews (York University, Canada) will be a Featured Scholar at Brains. She will blog for a couple of weeks about her work on cognition, communication, and folk psychology.
Other events planned tentatively for the fall include visits from Jakob Hohwy and Brie Gertler, plus Matt Fulkerson will blog about his MIT Press book The First Sense. We will also have another Mind & Language symposium to kick off the new academic year.
Many thanks to Kristina, Robert, and of course all you readers!
