Faculty of Philosophy


Meaning Reading Group

The Meaning Reading Group is an informal reading group in philosophy of language. In Michaelmas term 2021 we will meet fortnightly on Wednesdays from 2-3pm, starting on October 20th. For Michaelmas term at least, we will meet via Zoom.

At each meeting we discuss a recent paper in philosophy of language or linguistics. Sometimes we read work in progress by graduate students and faculty. Anyone at the University of Cambridge is welcome to attend (undergraduates, postgraduates, faculty, from any department).

To receive information about each week's reading, please subscribe to the mailing list here:

If you have any questions, or if you’d like to suggest a reading for the group, email Lucy McDonald -

NB: This group is completely separate from the philosophy of language postgraduate seminar/reading group organised by the Linguistics faculty. Please also note that we alternate time slots with the Feminist Philosophy Reading Group (starting Wednesday 13th October), so you can attend both!
