‘The Future as a Present Concern’ International Conference Online 2021: NUIG – IPS – BSP

The BSP teams up with the National University of Ireland Galway & The Irish Philosophical Society for major online event.

Joint international conference between the National University of Ireland Galway | Ollscoil Na Héireann Gaillimh, The Irish Philosophical Society | Cumann Fealsúnachta Na Héireann, and the British Society for Phenomenology.

This conference explores the question of the future from phenomenological and other philosophical perspectives. We encourage papers on various aspects of this question, whether ontological, ethical, aesthetical, epistemological, and in relation to political theory, gender theory, critical race theory, ecology, philosophy of religion, philosophy of science, and analytic philosophy. We would particularly welcome applications from practitioners who are interested in the application of phenomenology, philosophy, and theory in their professional disciplines.
