I just found out: this spring I'll get to present papers at two APA meetings! I'll be presenting on Many-One Identity and the Trinity at the Pacific APA, and on Time-Travel and Motion at the Central. Nifty, nifty nifty nifty! (I won't be able to attend the Eastern this year because I'll be teaching during winter break, but attending two out of three . . . I think I can live with that!)
It'll be exciting to go back to San Francisco - the last (and currently the only) time I was there was March 26th-30th, 2003, to attend my first Philosophy conference. And my dad went with me. Something semi-amusing: Before that APA meeting, my dad and I were both agnostic about whether I should attempt to become a philosopher; after that meeting, neither of us was agnostic, but for very different reasons! (For those of you concerned: my dad seems to have recovered from the experience as much as can be expected, and thanks you for your prayers and well-wishes.)
I'm looking forward to visiting Chicago as well - I've never been there. Do you think it would be permissible for me to visit the Economics department while I'm in town? Maybe if I email in advance, to see if there are any talks I could attend . . .
