In preparation

In various stages of completion or review, I have a paper on animalism (with Andrew Bailey), another paper on animalism (with Andrew Bailey and Allison Krile Thornton), a paper on performativity, a paper on inquiry (with Yasha Sapir), a paper on evidentiality and speech acts, and an edited volume with Oxford University Press on unstructured theories of content (with Andy Egan and Dirk Kindermann).
