Engaged Phenomenology II: Explorations of Embodiment, Emotions, and Sociality

The British Society for Phenomenology Annual Conference 2022

Location: University of Exeter, UK, in-person and online

Date: Tuesday 30 August – Thursday 1 September 2022

‘Engaged Phenomenology II: Explorations of Embodiment, Emotions and Sociality’ builds upon the themes and contributions of our 2020 online conference ‘Engaged Phenomenology’, and is an invitation for phenomenologists and practitioners to critically reflect on how lived experiences regarding embodiment, emotions and sociality are incorporated into their work. It encourages people working through phenomenological approaches to more explicitly consider the socio-political realities and power relations which inevitably frame experience – whether writing from first-hand experience, citing case studies, undertaking qualitative research, or engaging with communities. Taking stock in this way raises questions of methodology and ethics, of course, but can also more radically point towards the transformative potential within phenomenology to address and democratise the conditions of possibility for both theory and praxis. Complementing applied and critical phenomenology, engaged phenomenology appeals across disciplines and beyond the academy. Its focus on relational lived realities speaks to a variety of contexts (e.g., healthcare, medicine, education, design, art, performance, psychology, architecture, community spaces, etc.).
