Call for abstracts: Epistemic Norms

International Symposium
November 11-12, 2011
University of Sherbrooke
Quebec, Canada

Organized by the
Canadian Society for Epistemology

How we understand epistemic norms bears significantly on our conceptions of epistemic justification, rationality, and value. This year's symposium will be devoted to the core notion of epistemic norms. Presentation abstracts are welcomed on any particular topic of relevance, including relativism about epistemic norms, contextualist and externalist approaches to normativity, experimental epistemology and normative naturalism, non-epistemic norms for belief and the pragmatist-evidentialist divide, norm pluralism vs. epistemic value monism, and the problem of the criterion. The languages of the symposium are English and French.

Authors are invited to submit a 250 word abstract (in English or in French) for a paper of 20-30 minutes reading time. The deadline for submitting an abstract is Monday October 3rd. The abstract can be submitted online by web form (recommended) or by email (attachment in DOC or RTF format):
