Thank you for registering for the 4th TiLPS History of Analytic Philosophy Workshop. Please find below some practical information about the conference. If you have agreed to chair a session or comment on a presentation, you will receive a separate email with additional information later today.

Pre-recorded presentations

In order to make this online conference as accessible as possible, we have chosen to pre-record all the presentations and to make them available on YouTube. These videos are available as of today, so you can start binge-watching the lectures straight away. The program of the conference (with the relevant YouTube links) is attached to this email and can also be accessed on this password-protect page (password = THAPW2020-Zoom). The presentations are available only to registered participants and cannot be found via Google or the Youtube search engine.

Live Q&A sessions

On December 14 and 15, we organize live (online) Q&A sessions in which every talk receives a short 2-3 minute comment by a fellow participant and in which there is time for the audience to ask questions about the presentations. These Q&A sessions are organized thematically. Note that you need to watch the pre-recorded presentations before the start of each session.

The live Q&A sessions will take place via Zoom. The relevant zoom links are also included in the attached program. In order to enter a session, you need to click on the specific link for that zoom session. If you are experiencing any technical issues during the conference, please send an email to our IT assistant Makko Henkelman <m.henkelman@tilburguniversity.edu>.

Keynotes and panel discussion

In addition to the 50 contributed talks, the conference also features two keynote lectures by Sami Pihlström and Esther Ramharter and a panel discussion about the canon of analytic philosophy (featuring i.a. Sandra Lapointe). The keynote lectures are available on YouTube and will be discussed on December 14. The panel will be a live discussion on December 15.


If you would like to ask a question or comment on a presentation, you can either leave a comment on YouTube or join the live Q&As on December 14 and 15. As such, this conference aims to facilitate both live debate and discussion in the week before and after the conference. Please make sure to be as constructive as possible in your comments whether you are responding to a talk on YouTube or in a live session. In order to leave a comment on YouTube, you need a (free) Google, Gmail, or YouTube account. If you do not have a question or suggestion but enjoyed the video, short YouTube comments (e.g. “I enjoyed your presentation” or “Interesting talk”) are also appreciated.

Zoom netiquette

During the live Q&As you are asked to switch on your webcams (if possible) but to mute your microphones to avoid extraneous noise. If you would like to ask a question during the session, please indicate this by typing the word ‘question’ in the chat. The chair of the session will then call upon you to ask your question at a relevant moment. The chair will organize the Q&A based on the list of questions in the chat. Do not unmute your microphone until the chair asks you to ask your question.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you virtually at the conference. In the meantime, if you have questions about the conference, please email me at a.a.verhaegh@tilburguniversity.edu
