Organizers: Society for Phenomenology & the Human Sciences

 

SPHS encourages the application of phenomenological methodology to specific investigations within the human and social sciences. You are invited to participate in our engagement of phenomenology with multidisciplinary approaches to the social and human sciences. We are looking for those who share our dedication to theoretical, methodical and practical examinations of the Life-World.

We welcome submissions on all topics within the human and social sciences concerned with a reflective appreciation of the nature of experience. SPHS invites submissions for conference presentations that explore or apply qualitative approaches to the human and social sciences. Papers can engage any relevant aspect of the human sciences in general, or can focus on specific fields such as sociology, psychology, political science, anthropology, geography, communication, history, ecology, religion, cultural studies, ethnic/race/gender studies, medical/health sciences, and education. Submissions on all topics are welcome, though we especially encourage papers that advance dialogue between philosophy and the human sciences, address the relation between theory and praxis, focus on embodiment or present reflective investigations of the nature of experience in general. Papers should bear substantive relation to phenomenology, broadly conceived, or its kindred traditions. In addition to phenomenology, examples of methods and approaches relevant to the conference include existentialism, hermeneutics, critical theory, ethnography, ethnomethodology, semiotics, grounded theory, poststructuralism, and deconstruction. Graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to submit their work.
