The ability for phenomenology to centre embodiment in philosophical analysis has been a significant draw for theorists and practitioners—increasingly in transdisciplinary areas, such as health and medical humanities. Phenomenology also continues to offer rich approaches to lived time, to history and normativity, and to generative accounts of culture and ethics—from conceptualising the dynamics of time-consciousness through to critical interventions on contemporary issues.

That phenomenology can span, integrate, trouble, unsettle, and renew our understanding of these experiential structures – embodiment and history – speaks to the exciting philosophical dialogues within the field today.

The British Society for Phenomenology Annual Conference is a longstanding and respected feature of the UK academic scene, providing a friendly and supportive forum for inter-disciplinary discussion. This year we are partnering with the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol, UK) to explore these questions together—a place reckoning with its own complex history and identity.
