I'm here for May 20 and 21

Tomorrow I head off on a flying visit to Oxford for a Workshop on Verbal Disputes and their Philosophical Significance. I’m looking forward to catching up with old friends and making new ones. The lineup for the workshop is fantastic, so it looks like it’ll be a great time. If you’re in the area, please do come along and say “hi”. If you can’t come, I’ve posted the slides and handout for my talk here.

Advocacy on Sydney Road

19 March 2015

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.

Just today, I stumbled across a video of an interview with me from 2013, explaining our thinking behind teaching introductory logic on Coursera, and the connections between this and classroom teaching. Come for the ideas, stay for the crazy hand gestures.

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.
