From March 28 – April 1, 2022, the second DFG Symposium in Philosophy will take place at the Villa Vigoni on the Lago di Como in Northern Italy. I’m already looking forward to a week of intense discussion and presenting some ideas on the relationship between imagination and narration as modes of understanding.
On June 24 and 25, 2021, we host an international conference on “Resonance – Response – Resilience: Phenomenological and Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Existential Experiences of Crisis and Vulnerability” as part of our subproject in the DFG Special Research Unit “Resilience in Religion and Spirituality”.
Here you can find the programme.
Together with Sebastian Luft, I co-organize a one-day digital conference on the topic “Social Ontology and Objective Spirit – Classical and Contemporary Perspectives” on 28 May 2021.
The poster and programme can be found here!
On May 6 and 7, 2021, I have the pleasure to host a virtual international conference on the topic “Zu den halben Sachen selbst! Phänomenologie des Unfertigen“, which will explore the concepts of partiality, incompleteness, and the fragmentary in phenomenology and other philosophical disciplines.
The schedule of talks is here!
Happy to announce that we have been granted a two-year research project on “The Role of Transcultural Semantics and Symbols for Resilience During the Corona Pandemic – A Hermeneutic Approach to Historical and Intercultural Expressions of Severe Crisis” by the Volkswagen Foundation. I am looking forward to collaborating with Cornelia Richter (Bonn) and Judith Gärtner (Rostock) on this topic!
