The new year starts as inspiring, productive, and busy as the last one ended. I have been invited to present my work at several workshops, conferences, and colloquia. If you wish to attend, please send me an email and I will forward you the link to the meeting whenever I can.


Colloquium Lund/Goethenburg Responsibility Project
27 January 2021, held online
This is a pre-read format. I will discuss one of my recent experimental papers on derivative moral responsibility.

Research Colloquium “Philosophy of Cognition” at TU Berlin
23 February 2021, held online
In this talk, I will give an introduction to experimental philosophy and then use the experimental philosophy of language as a case study, demonstrating how Xphi can help philosophers and other cognitive scientists make progress.

Experimental and Feminist Philosophy Workshop, organised by the City University New York
7-8 May 2021, held online
This workshop is a fantastic initiative dedicating to supporting underrepresented groups in experimental philosophy and to extending experimental philosophy to questions of feminist philosophy. In my talk, I will give an introduction to experimental philosophy and outline how the experimental paradigm is suited to empirically investigate feminist critiques of analytic moral philosophy.

Epistemology Colloquium at University of Zurich
4 June 2021, held online
In this talk, I will present new experimental evidence on how thick concepts can be used to reinforce or alter people’s behaviour.

1st Conference of Experimental Philosophy Group Europe
17. to 19 June, in Prague and/or online 
In this talk, I will give an overview of my latest project on normativity in language, with a special focus on how evaluation is communicated and what we can socially do with evaluative language.

Experimental Philosophy Conference at Universidade de Caxias do Sul, Brasil
date to be determined, online 
I was invited to give a keynote talk at this fantastic experimental philosophy conference.

Workshop on Moral Responsibility and Graded Causation
29 to 30 Juli 2021, in Bern
It is usually assumed that moral responsibility presupposes causal responsibility in the sense that “You can only be blamed for what you’ve done!”. In this talk, I present empirical evidence that the conceptual relation between moral and causal responsibility is in fact much more complex.
