Practicing phenomenological reflection and writing

It is our great pleasure to invite researchers, doctoral students and others with phenomenological interest to a two-day conference and writing seminar with Max and Michael van Manen, which will take place on 3-4 May 2023 in beautiful Bodø, in Norway.

Start date:

03 May 2023 00:00

End date:

04 May 2023 00:00

Location:

Bodøgaard i Bodø
​​
​​​​​​​​​​​The aim of the conference is to promote phenomenological writing as a form of writing that allows life to be present and even breathe in scientific texts.

The structure of the conference will feature a combination of keynote lectures, discussions, opportunities to practise phenomenological writing processes, and concrete discussions among the participants concerning the development of texts.

The main target group will be researchers and doctoral students from all over Europe who are already working in the field of phenomenology, and who will already have some insight and experience with regard to phenomenological writing. Others are of course welcome, but they would have to familiarise themselves with the basic phenomenological perspectives.

Participants should expect to do a certain amount of prereading and a pre-writing exercise in preparation for the conference​. Information about this will be forwarded to participants after registration. 

The conference is being arranged by the research group Theory of practical knowledge​ at Nord University. We are looking forward to seeing you!
