The Centre for Logic and Language was inaugurated in Nov 2008 as part of the Institute of Philosophy. It was created to produce and support high quality research on logic and language in philosophy and neighbouring disciplines.

The Centre hosts a regular seminar series, the LEM – Logic, Epistemology and Metaphysics Forum. The forum meets in term time.
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all future seminars have been postponed. We hope to arrange virtual seminars in the near future, and will post details here.
The Centre aims to provide information about other activities and events in the philosophy of language, logic and linguistics and to create on-line resources for gathering and improving access to research papers on topics in this area. We expect activities to grow and will look for opportunities for further collaborations with our partners.
