Two phenomenology events at the University of Greenwich (June 2024)

Call for abstracts extended for Phenomenology summer school and conference

The call for abstracts will be open until 15th March 2024 at 12 noon.

The focus of the Summer School is on learning about hermeneutic phenomenology, and how to apply phenomenological principals to qualitative research. The event is aimed at Masters’ and doctoral students and their supervisors, as well as experienced researchers, either seeking an introduction to, or extending their knowledge of phenomenology.

The Summer School will take place 24 – 27 June 2024, University of Greenwich.

The conference, titled “Authentic Care in Health and Social Care, and Education: A Conference”, is for those working in, aspiring to work in or curious about hermeneutic phenomenology. The focus of the conference is highlighting how research can translate into authentic care in education, health, and social care policy and practice.

The conference will be held 28 June 2024 at the University of Greenwich.

The conference is developed by University of Greenwich’s Prof. Lesley Dibley in an international partnership with Prof. Susan Crowther (Auckland University of Technology), and Prof Gill Thomson (University of Centra Lancashire). The three are experienced and well-published phenomenologists.

Professor Lesley Dibley:

‘Phenomenology allows health and social care researchers to deep dive into exploring the meaning people attach to their experiences and responses to life events – which in turn can help us understand needs – and to inform policy, practice, and future research.

‘If you come to the phenomenology summer school in June you will engage with others who are learning about phenomenology and learn, debate, and discuss your research with three international academics working with phenomenology as a tool to create better health, education, and social care‘.
