Re-approaching the Foundations of Phenomenology


New School for Social Research

New York, New York


Keynote Speakers

John Drummond, Fordham University

James Dodd, New School



Phenomenology has examined the foundations of the consciously experienced world for more than a century. The history of that engagement contextualizes the approach taken up by this generation while researching phenomenology’s thinkers, themes, and influences.

We welcome papers pertinent to the topics of phenomenology’s foundational thinkers and texts (such as Husserl, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty), themes and problems (such as being, time, space and intentionality), and the employment of phenomenological methods in other disciplines (such as religious studies, anthropology, politics and media studies). All topics that seek to reengage the phenomenological tradition will be considered for inclusion and publication.

Abstracts of up to 400 words will be accepted; finished papers are encouraged. Papers should be no more than 4,000 words or 30 minutes of reading time. Please format papers for blind review, with no identifying information, and send as .doc, .docx, or .pdf file to the New York Phenomenology Research Group at [email protected]
