Academic Convenors: Judith Squires and Dario Castiglione. They write (Jan 2013): Dworkin (who at the time was still teaching in Oxford for part of the year) could not come back from NY, because his wife was ill, so he cancelled at the last minute. Cecile Laborde presented a paper in his place. As far as we can remember, she gave the paper in the afternoon, while we moved the round-table on Hollis to the evening. The other defection for last minute illness was Hillel Steiner, so Quentin presented a paper on Hobbes instead of the programmed session together with Hillel. As you can see from the programme, we packed some extra slots (against tradition). In spite of the fact that lots of people were ill with flu over Xmas (I got it soon after the holidays, and remember coughing throughout the proceedings), we had very high attendance (in excess of 100, as far as I remember)
