2nd Scottish Epistemology Early Career Researchers (SEECRs) Pre-Read Workshop

24th August 2023

Event Navigation

The Scottish Epistemology Early Career Researchers (SEECRs) group is holding a workshop for papers in any area of epistemology, authored by postgraduate students and self-identified early career researchers based in, or with research links to, Scotland.

The workshop will take place at the University of St. Andrews on the 24th August 2023.


The aim of the workshop is to share cutting-edge research and facilitate the exchange of ideas among early career epistemologists in Scotland, as well as to provide early career epistemologists with detailed feedback on their work in a supportive and constructive environment.

Five papers will be selected to be pre-read and discussed at the workshop with a group of other postgraduate students and early career researchers based in Scotland. Each paper will receive a response from a member of SEECRs who works on the same or a similar research topic.

Conference Venue: G03, Edgecliffe, St Andrews (coffee breaks and lunch in G01).
