2016 Joint Session


About

The Joint Session is a three-day conference in philosophy that is held annually during the summer by the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association. It has taken place at nearly every major university across the United Kingdom and in Ireland. Since 1910, the Joint Session has grown to become the largest gathering of philosophers in the country, attracting prestigious UK and international speakers working in a broad range of philosophical areas. Inaugurated by the incoming President of the Mind Association, the Joint Session includes symposia, open and postgraduate sessions, and a range of satellite conferences.

The 90th Joint Session of the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association will be held at Cardiff University from 8 to 10 July 2016.

This year’s local organiser is Nicholas Shackel.

Cardiff University is a public research university located in Cardiff, Wales. It was founded in 1883 as the University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire, and in 1893 became one of the founding colleges of the University of Wales. Cardiff University became an independent university awarding its own degrees in 1999.  It is the second oldest university in Wales and a member of the Russell Group of leading British research universities. The university is consistently recognised as providing high-quality research-based university education. Its world-leading research was ranked 5th amongst UK universities in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework for quality and 2nd for impact. Driven by creativity and curiosity, it strives to fulfil its social, cultural and economic obligations to Cardiff, Wales, and the world.
