Last summer, I had the distinct pleasure of directing a week-long conference with my advisor, Gregory Landini. This was “The Philosophy of Logical Atomism: A Centenary Celebration” and was held on 12-16 June, 2017. The conference celebrated the upcoming centenary of Bertrand Russell’s 1918 lectures on logical atomism.

The University of Iowa’s Obermann Center for Advanced Studies funded and supported the seminar. The seminar was co-sponsored by the Bertrand Russell Society (Iowa Chapter). The participants are listed below. It was a wonderful time! And stay tuned for a resulting publication in Palgrave Macmillan’s History of Analytic Philosophy series!
