Spring Reading Groups (and Other Plans)

This Spring (i.e., the semester, not the season), I am planning to organize two reading groups:

(1) A reading group on Anscombe's Intention (and related works). A lot of USC people expressed interest in this one, and there are a lot of people with related interests in the department, so that should be a lot of fun and very rewarding.

(2) The continuation of our Early Modern Women in Philosophy reading group. I imagine we will stick with Mary Shepherd for now, but there are a lot of other great female figures to study in the early modern period, so we are not likely to run out of options.

Anyone outside USC with interest in either of these should let me know so I can include you in e-mails and the like.

I'll also be sitting in on Ed McCann's Locke/Leibniz seminar, defending my dissertation(! — on March 1st), and continuing in my role as managing editor of the Pacific Philosophical Quarterly.
