Dear all,

This is a reminder that the workshop "Disagreement in Semantics" will 
take place at the University of Vienna on MAY 7-8. The workshop aims to 
engage with recent developments in the contemporary debate about the 
semantics of perspectival expressions (predicates of taste, aesthetic 
adjectives, moral terms, epistemic vocabulary, gradable adjectives etc.) 
between relativism, contextualism, absolutism and expressivism. There 
will be 8 external speakers whose papers will receive comments from 
members of the department.

Here is the updated program of the workshop:
