Due to fewer submissions than usual for our annual conference, the Executive Committee has decided to hold two half-day virtual workshops in June in place of the originally planned annual meeting.
In keeping with the original dates we had proposed, the first half-day workshop will be the afternoon (EDT) of Wednesday 22 June. The workshop will entail five 45-minute sessions (with breaks partway through) Following the workshop, we will be hosting an online happy hour with space for us to gather and socialize for a bit to remind ourselves of the joys of doing philosophy with our IAEP colleagues.
The second half-day workshop will be the morning (EDT) of Friday 24 June. It will entail four 45 minutes sessions and will wrap up in time for lunch (on the east coast of North America at least). The program for the workshops is below.
While there will be no cost for attendance at these workshops, registration is still required so that we can ensure that you receive the appropriate link to join us online. Please go HERE to register no later than Monday, June 20.
