Dear all,

This is to announce that the Metasemantics reading group (organized last 
semester by Prof. Max Kölbel, Dr. Dirk Kindermann and myself) will 
continue in the Summer semester. We will read papers from the collection 
"The Science of Meaning", edited by Derek Ball and Brian Rabern (link to 
the table of contents here: 
as well as other papers that we might agree on later.

Those who would like to participate, please take the following poll to 
establish a day/time for the meeting: 
https://dudle.inf.tu-dresden.de/a836fhqo/. The poll is for the week 
February 25 - March 1, but it represents the choices for the entire 
semester. Each meeting is 1 hour and 30 minutes. Please write your full 
name in the relevant box, so that to avoid confusion. Important: please 
fill in the poll by FEBRUARY 20 (if you need more time, do write me an 
email). We aim to start the reading group in the week beginning with 
February 25.

In order to ensure a smooth process, besides reading the assigned text 
and willingness to discuss it, the participants should
- Commit to be present at (at least) 3/4 of the sessions. This will help 
with obtaining a critical mass of participants to each session, as well 
as with continuity.
- Announce in advance if they won't be able to make it to a certain 
session (in case they know it, of course) - for example, by contacting 
me at the email address dan.zeman at univie.ac.at. This will help save 

I hope to see many of you in the reading group! Feel free to write me 
with further questions.
