The Santa Cruz Linguistics and Philosophy Group

SCLP is an interdisciplinary reading group at UC Santa Cruz consisting of faculty and graduate students from philosophy and linguistics.  The focus of the group is in the areas of formal semantics, the philosophy of language, and philosophical logic.

SCLP began life as the Santa Cruz Language and Linguistics Group (SCLL). Since 2004 it has hosted a Distinguished Visitor Series which has been generously supported by UCSC's Institute for Humanities Research, the Linguistics Department, and the Philosophy Department. For a list of our past Distinguished Visitors and further information, explore the links at the top.
