How do the logos and its phenomenon relate? How does the logos itself appear? Is any articulation of the phenomenon possible? We are currently welcoming submissions for the 3rd annual University of Sussex graduate conference in phenomenology. The themes of the last two years have been, respectively, the beginnings and the ends of phenomenology. This year the focus is on an ambiguous relationship at the core of phenomenology: the relationship between its basic parts, phenomenon and logos. We invite abstracts for papers that engage with phenomenology, and its fundamental structure, or engage phenomenologically. What is it to speak of phenomena and what is it, phenomenologically, to speak? By examining the rapport between phenomenology and its phenomenon we hope to reinvigorate the heart of phenomenology: a speaking of the phenomenon.

This conference provides the opportunity for graduate students to present for twenty minutes and receive questions and feedback for an additional twenty minutes each. The University of Sussex graduate conference in Phenomenology is a two-day conference, organized by graduate students for graduate students. It is organized as a single 'stream', ensuring that every speaker has the opportunity of addressing all delegates. We aim to bring together postgraduates engaging in original research on phenomenology and related branches of philosophy and to promote contemporary studies in this field.

This event is open to the public, and free to non-participants. For further information concerning travel and accommodation, please contact Arthur ([email protected]).
