Title: 'Do Rape Accusations Rule Out Relevant Alternatives? On Uncorroborated Testimony and Legal Proof'

Speaker biography

Georgi Gardiner specialises in epistemology. Her research clusters into five areas. The first is the nature and value of understanding and explanation. The second concerns questions about epistemic virtue, value, and luck. The third area is the ethics of belief and especially the effect of moral considerations on epistemic norms. Fourthly, she examines meta-philosophy and the epistemology of philosophy. Finally, she researches social and applied epistemology, especially collective epistemology and legal epistemology.

Recently she has been investigating the epistemology of legal standards of proof and sexual assault accusations.
