On the afternoon of Sunday March 1, Sydney Road in Brunswick was transformed by its annual Street Party. Over four blocks of this busy inner north thoroughfare was closed to trams and cars, lined by stalls, punctuated with live bands, and filled with crowds. Everyone was sampling wares, eating, drinking and soaking in the atmosphere. It’s a distinctive slice of multicultural Brunswick life, and an opportunity for everyone to get out and sample that Brunswick experience in all its variety.
I’m delighted to finally announce that I have a job to offer on my five year ARC funded research project in philosophical logic and its applications, “Meaning in Action: new techniques for language, logic and information.” It’s a two year postdoctoral research position, with a little bit of teaching on the side. If you’re interested in philosophical logic, and would like to join the logic group at Melbourne, this is the job for you.
Here’s a detail from my genealogy. (This image is a link to a pdf file of the entire thing.)
Teaching started for first semester, with the launch of Logic: Language and Information 1 on Coursera. That’s been a lot of fun already, with over 17,000 enrolled. There’s something very exciting about being involved with a large number of students all around the world, choosing to work hard to learn logic for the first time.
I’m Greg Restall, and this is my personal website.
