This 2014-2015 academic year, we will present a new series of Interdisciplinary Approaches to Consciousness Geballe Workshops, sponsored by the Stanford Humanities Center. We are currently planning workshops on consciousness & literature, and the hard problem of consciousness.

We will also be holding a Dretske-fest in Spring 2015. Details soon.
