Call for Papers for the New York Meeting 2010

Dear Members of the Husserl Circle,  

It is my pleasure to issue this call for papers for the 40th annual Husserl Circle meeting that will take place at the New School for Social Research (New York) on Monday through Wednesday, June 21-23.

The conference will be held at the Theresa Lang Student Center, 55 West 13th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues).  

The deadline for paper submissions is April 15, 2010. Papers should be no more than 30 minutes reading length, in order to allow for sufficient time for comments and discussion. Only members of the Husserl Circle in good standing are invited to submit, though suggestions for inviting potential new members to present at the meeting are always welcome.  

Please send papers either by email to, or by hard copy to:  

Professor James Dodd
Department of Philosophy
New School for Social Research
6 East 16th Street,
New York NY 10003    

Given the increase of submissions in recent years, we will be forming a review committee in early 2010 in order to select papers for the conference. Final decisions will be announced by May 15.  

Please be sure to include your full contact information, including email, since we plan to distribute the proceedings electronically in advance of the meeting in June.  

In January we will distribute information concerning travel and lodging in New York City. We are currently making arrangements with nearby hotels in order to be able to offer a modest conference rate.  

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all in New York, in celebration of the 40th meeting of our society in the place where it all began.    

With very best wishes,          

James Dodd
Associate Professor of Philosophy
New School for Social Research 

Letter of the Secretary

November 24, 2009    

Dear Colleague,  

The 40th annual meeting of the Husserl Circle held in Paris, France, under the coordination of Institut d'Histoire et de Philosophie des Sciences et des Techniques (IHPST) and the Centre Scientifique de l'Académie Polonaise des Sciences this past June, was an immense success. Special thanks are in order to Convenors, Mark van Atten and Wioletta Miskiewicz, 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. The following have accepted invitations to join the Circle:  

Shazad Akhtar (Marquette University) Ulrika Björk (Uppsala University, Sweden) Jean-François Courtine (Université Paris IV et Archive Husserl, France) Arnaud Dewalque (Université de Liège, Belgium) Molly Flynn (Assumption College) German Vargas Guillén (Universidad Pedagogica Nacional, Columbia) Sara Heinämaa (Helsinki University, Finland) Hanne Jacobs (Catholic University Leuven, Belgium) Raymond Kassis (University of Paris 10 [Nanterre] France) Jean-François Lavigne (Unviersité de Nice, France) Adnrzej Leder (Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland) Efstathios Livadas (Padras, Greece) Carlos Lobo (Caen, France) Filip Mattens (Catholic University Leuven, Belgium) Wioletta Miskiewicz (IHPST/CNRS Paris, France) Harry Nethery (Duqusene University) Witold Płotka (Poland) Jonathan Kim-Reuter (New York) Alexander Schnell (University of Paris IV, France) Michael Sigrist (Stony Brook University) Emilano Trizio (Université Lille, France)  

At the annual Business Meeting, the members voted to limit the number of papers on the program to FIVE per day. The half-hour time limit per paper and the ten-minute commentary limit remain in effect. The idea behind this is to allow for more discussion of each paper.  

The members voted to accept Pat Burke’s invitation to host the 2011 meeting at Gonzaga University Florence, April 25-27.  

The members also approved the proposal for the Circle to join the International Federation of Philosophical Societies (FISP).  

The next meeting of the Husserl Circle will take place at The New School for Social Research, June 21-23, 2010.

A letter with a call for papers and other information from James Dodd, the Convenor, is enclosed.    

With best wishes,    

Burt Hopkins Secretary
