Organizers: The New York Phenomenology Research Group
In continuation with our conference last spring, The New York Phenomenology Research Group once again invites regional phenomenologists to a works in progress conference emphasizing collaborative research. This event will take place on Saturday, February 27th at The New School for Social Research in New York City.
The theme for our conference is phenomenology and the mind. We construe this topic broadly, as covering anything from the intersections between phenomenology and psychoanalysis, philosophy of mind, neuroscience, etc. to the way in which the phenomenological mind operates experientially in its own right, or with respect to, embodiment, aesthetic experience, design, identity, gender/race/ability, and more.
This conference encourages participants to research and work through ideas with one another rather than having them present completed papers in a traditional conference style. It's our sincere hope to bring together students working through similar problems in phenomenology, in order to build a supportive network of emerging phenomenologists and philosophers in the New York area. For this reason, this event will not host any keynote speakers. Rather, the structure of this conference will be focused on encouraging student research and community in a collaborative environment.
We welcome short, in-progress papers that deal with topics in both the canonical tradition and phenomenological methods as mediums of inquiry. Papers should be no longer than 10-15 minutes when presented, and will be organized into panels (4-5) according to topic. Each panel will be approximately two hours, with the first hour dedicated to brief presentations and the second hour to open conversation, Q&A, and collaborative research. Group research and panel proposals are also welcome.
