Escuela de verano: Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students

12.12.2013
Comienza: 27 de Julio de 2014 hasta el 02 de Agosto.

The Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) is organizing the first Summer School on Mathematical Philosophy for Female Students, which will be held from July 27 to August 2, 2014 in Munich, Germany. The summer school is open to excellent female students who want to specialize in mathematical philosophy.

Since women are significantly underrepresented in philosophy generally and in formal philosophy in particular, this summer school is aimed at encouraging women to engage with mathematical methods and apply them to philosophical problems. The summer school will provide an infrastructure for developing expertise in some of the main formal approaches used in mathematical philosophy, including theories of individual and collective decision-making, agent-based modeling, and epistemic logic. Furthermore, it offers study in an informal setting, lively debate, and a chance to strengthen mathematical self-confidence and independence for female students. Finally, being located at the MCMP, the summer school will also provide a stimulating and interdisciplinary environment for meeting like-minded philosophers.

Call for Application

The summer school is open to women with a keen interest in mathematical philosophy. Applicants should be female students of philosophy, or philosophically minded logicians, mathematicians, or scientists at an advanced undergraduate level, in a master program, or at an early PhD level. To apply for participation, please send a cover letter (including a statement of motivation) and your CV (ideally everything in one pdf file) to mathsummer2014@lrz.uni-muenchen.de. A separate letter of recommendation should be sent to the same address. Please indicate in your cover letter if you wish to present your own project. The deadline for applications is February 15, 2014. Decisions will be made by March 1, 2014. The participation fee is 200€. The language of all events will be English.

The summer school is organized by Stephan HartmannCatherine HerfeldHannes Leitgeb, and Kristina Liefke.
