Next Husserl Circle Meeting,
Marquette 2008

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
This letter is to invite you to attend the 38th International Husserl Circle Conference, which will take place on the campus of Marquette University in Milwaukee on June 26-29, 2008. 
We also encourage you to submit a paper for a talk, either in abstract or full paper submission.  We prefer electronic submissions (by email, either to Sebastian or to Pol, see email addresses below).  The deadline for submissions is March 1 and speakers will be notified by April 7.  Please limit your talk to 20-30 minutes and commentators have ca. 10 minutes to respond, to leave ample time for discussion.  In the case of an acceptance, we will be asking you to submit your full paper ca. one month ahead of the conference to include it in the booklet that will be made available to all participants.  We are expecting a good number of paper submissions; hence, in the event that we have too many submissions to include in the program, we will give preference to full papers over abstracts.  We also ask you to identify yourself in your submissions, as we intend to include a significant percentage of graduate students or scholars who have not yet presented at the Husserl Circle.  If you are willing to also serve as a commentator for another paper and/or chair a session, please indicate that with your application.  You are also welcome to only serve as commentator or session chair; please let us know if you would be able to attend and willing to take over one of these functions.
As additional feature, we are planning to have a session (3-4 papers) from undergraduate students.  Hence, please pass this call for papers on to the undergraduates at your institutions who you think are qualified to give a talk.
We have arranged lodging in the beautifully renovated Ambassador Hotel, which is walking distance from campus.  We have negotiated a room block for the weekend of June 26-29 starting at $ 89 per night.  To make reservations, please call toll free at (888) 322-3326 or visit  When making a reservation, please mention the Marquette University conference rate.  We will also provide student dormitory housing (multi-occupancy rooms) at a lower rate.  More information on this will follow in a later letter.  The Marquette campus is walking distance to downtown with its sites, museums and restaurants. Milwaukee is a city of 600,000 inhabitants located on the shore of Lake Michigan eighty miles north of Chicago.  Milwaukee’s Airport, Mitchell International, is served by several airlines.  Another option is to fly in to Chicago; there are several ways of traveling from Chicago to Milwaukee (buses, Amtrak).  For further information on how to reach Milwaukee, please visit
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send us an email ( or
We look forward to welcoming you in Milwaukee next year and to hosting another excellent conference!
