Survey on Publishing in Philosophy

On behalf of the Women in Philosophy Task Force:

All professional philosophers are invited to participate in a survey on publishing in philosophy. It should take about 10 minutes. It will be useful to have your CV handy as you fill it out. Please go here to find it:
If all goes well, Sally Haslanger will report on the results at the December APA in the symposium on philosophy publishing (Wednesday December 30th, 11:15-1:15).
Thanks for your help. Please spread the word.

We are living in a material world

Sorry for the long hiatus!! I have been moving around a lot: from Sheffield to Murcia, from Murcia to Barcelona (where I spent 4 marvelous months at LOGOS), and then back to Murcia briefly to pack, and finally, I moved to Winnipeg just on time for Canada Day! Things are going very well here so far. I love my new city and my new job! Some highlights: we are having a summer reading group, and just now we are reading Jennifer Saul's book "Simple Sentences, Substitution, and Intuitions", which is a lot of fun to read and discuss. I hope to post some comments on this soon...
But in the meantime, I just wanted to share some good news: my paper "We are living in a material world (and I am a material girl)" has been accepted by Teorema (in a special issue on Phenomenal Consciousness and Naturalism). This issue looks very interesting, and I look forward to seeing it!

New Job

More good news: I have just accepted a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba, starting in July 2008. I am very excited about this job, and I really look forward to moving to Winnipeg and joining all my new colleagues in my new Department!

In the meanwhile, I will spend the next few months as a Visitor in Logos - Logic, Language and Cognition Research Group (University of Barcelona). I'm sure it will be a lot of fun, and good philosophy!

I have great news: I just passed my viva and got my PhD!!! So I am finally a Doctor!!!

The viva took place on the 4th of October (2007). The examiners were Jennifer Saul and Manuel GarcĂ­a-Carpintero, both of whom were great examiners. I was recommended to pass the viva with no corrections (although the PhD will not be officially awarded until the Dean duly certifies so).

The viva went very well, and the discussion was terribly interesting. I hope to post on some of the issues raised there soon, once the celebrations are over...

It feels great to finally have finished such a tremendous task! When I started this blog, about a year ago, I still had a long way ahead, and I am glad that everything turned out so well at the end. I learned a lot this year and this blog had a little bit to do with that. I was looking forward to this moment when I can finally say, with respect to finishing my thesis, submitting it and passing the viva: Been There, Done That!!

Boundage and Submission

I have finished my PhD! Or at least, I have finished writing my dissertation, and I just printed and took it to the binders. I will submit it this Thursday. You can check out the final version here. (Now I have to prepare for the viva voce...)

Thanks to all the people who have read, commented and supported this blog during these months! I will keep blogging about all matters conscious and two-dimensional (more often that before, I hope) when I come back from my holidays in Spain.
