The first annual Women in Metaphysics Retreat will be held in Rochester, Vermont, May 25 – 27, 2013.


We gratefully acknowledge the support of Una MacDowell and the Philosophy Departments at Princeton, Rutgers, and NYU.


This workshop and retreat is intended to serve as a place at which women graduate students working in metaphysics can get together and formally and informally share ideas, meals, and enjoy beautiful Vermont.  The retreat will be held at a private home in the town of Rochester, Vermont, which is one of the main access points to the northern half of the Green Mountain National Forest.
