There are no dates or details as yet, but the conference organizing committee will post an announcement at this website as soon as the plans become clear enough to share.

Meanwhile, please begin reminding yourself of your favorite paragraph or two from Jerry’s books, or jokes from his papers, or arias from his opera collection, to pack in your suitcase or to post on the website once it is up.

Plans are underway for celebrating Jerry Fodor's life and work. There will be a very small in-house meeting at Rutgers this spring, for Jerry’s friends and colleagues at RuCCS (the Rutgers Center for Cognitive Science). At some later time, definitely after the summer, there will be a major international conference at Rutgers, open to everyone who would like to attend and is able to be there.

 

There are no dates or details as yet, but the conference organizing committee will post an announcement at this website as soon as the plans become clear enough to share.

 

Meanwhile, please begin reminding yourself of your favorite paragraph or two from Jerry’s books, or jokes from his papers, or arias from his opera collection, to pack in your suitcase or to post on the website once it is up.
