[ecrea] Society for Phenomenology and Media: Call for Papers

Thu Nov 07 21:15:59 GMT 2013

Call for Papers / Panels

EXTENDED DEADLINE: December 15th, 2013

Society for Phenomenology and Media
16th Annual Conference
March 12-15, 2014
Hochschule Furtwangen University and
Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Germany

The Society for Phenomenology and Media (SPM) is pleased to receive abstracts (200 words maximum) for consideration of inclusion in its 16th annual international conference. The conference will be sponsored by Hochschule Furtwangen University, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, and the Husserl Archives-Freiburg. It will be held in Freiburg im Breisgau at the university.

Proposals for 3-person panels are now also being accepted. These should be organized around specific media—for example: film, the Internet, mobile communication, medieval manuscripts, print media (books, newspapers, and magazines), stage drama, television, visual art, dance, etc. Panel proposals should include three papers, one of them by the panel organizer. Individual abstract submissions are assigned to a panel by the conference host.

The Society for Phenomenology and Media encourages interdisciplinary approaches and theoretical diversity. Individual papers and panels need not be limited to phenomenological approaches. In the past, papers have come from diverse theoretical perspectives, including critical theory, cultural studies, hermeneutics, Marxism, New Historicism, post-colonial theory, pragmatism, semiotics, speech-act theory, and others. Participants have come from a wide range of disciplines: philosophy, media studies, communications, psychology, history, political science, sociology, rhetoric, literary theory, cognitive science, cultural studies, and other fields.

Deadline for individual abstracts and panel proposals: December 15th, 2013.

Doctoral students are invited to submit proposals, but should note that SPM limits the number of papers from students. Conference abstracts and panel proposals submitted are peer reviewed. Papers accepted and presented are published afterwards.

For consideration, send abstracts, panel proposals, and other questions to:

Dr. Yoni Van Den Eede,
Secretary, Society for Phenomenology and Media
