Next Husserl Circle Meeting: Boston 2012

Information and Call for Papers

The 42nd annual meeting of the Husserl Circle held in Florence, Italy at Gonzaga University Florence this past April was an immense success. Special thanks are in order to Convenor Pat Burke, who did a superb job of assembling a first-rate program and attending to the every need of the many members and friends of the Circle in attendance. The level of presentation and discussion was once again very high.

At the business meeting the members agreed to a modest increase in dues, from $35 to $40, which is the first increase since dues were instituted a decade ago. Also, the members voted to adopt permanently the conference schedule employed in Florence of four papers a day over a period of four days.

The next meeting of the Husserl Circle will take place at Boston College June 6-9, 2012.

With best wishes,
Burt Hopkins
Permanent Secretary

Dear Members and Friends of the Husserl Circle,

It is my great pleasure to announce that the 43rd Annual meeting of the Husserl Circle will take place at Boston College from June 6-9, 2012 (Wednesday through Saturday).

The submission deadline is February, 1, 2012. Papers should have a reading time of no more than 30 minutes. Please send your submission via email (as an attachment) to the following address: Decisions will be announced by March 1, 2012.   Considering the success of last year’s meeting in Florence, I will maintain the same format—two sessions a day, and two papers per session—for this upcoming meeting in Boston.  Due to the cost of lodging in Boston, I will make every effort to arrange a variety of lodging options, both on and off campus. Although approval is pending, there will hopefully be affordable accomodations on campus. Nonetheless there will definitely be special conference rates at two or three hotels nearby, which are all accessible via the T (metro/subway).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to welcoming you in Boston next June!
