CALL FOR PAPERS
The Interdisciplinary Coalition of North American Phenomenologists
May 24-26, 2013
Mahwah, New Jersey
The Interdisciplinary Coalition of North American Phenomenologists (ICNAP) calls for abstracts/paper summaries to be submitted for inclusion in our 2013 meeting at Ramapo College May 24-26.
Founded in 2009, ICNAP (http://www.icnap.org/) is committed to fostering interdisciplinary connections with phenomenology. Founded by colleagues from Architecture, Communicology, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology, ICNAP continues to expand its interdisciplinary connections.
CONFERENCE THEME: Understanding Embodiment
We welcome works that feature phenomenology in all academic disciplines. In addition to presentations employing phenomenology in single disciplines, we are interested broadly in issues related to theories of embodiment. This includes, but is not limited to, theoretical expositions of the phenomenological conditions of embodiment as they are 1) developed and contested within the phenomenological tradition, 2) taken up and pursued within specific disciplinary contexts, and 3) applied in research, clinical and other practical contexts.
