The North American Society for Philosophical Hermeneutics
CALL FOR PAPERS
NASPH will hold its 3rd annual conference September 26-27, 2008 at DePaul University. Georgia Warnke (UC Riverside) will present the keynote address on Friday evening. Other invited presenters include Fred Dallmayr (Notre Dame) and Lawrence Schmidt (Hendrix College).
Submissions for papers are invited on all themes related to philosophical hermeneutics, but we are especially interested in papers discussing the theme of Hermeneutics and Critique. In order to promote a spirit of dialogue and meaningful reflection on each paper, presenters will be asked to make their papers available for posting on our web site to be read in advance. Sessions will consist of 15-20 minutes of reflective summaries of papers, followed by 45-60 minutes of discussion. Since papers will not be read in-session, there is some flexibility regarding length: submissions may be between 3000 and 6000 words in length. Complete papers, formatted for blind review, must be submitted electronically to email@example.com. Attachments in either .doc or .rtf format are preferable. The deadline for full-paper submissions is June 1, 2008. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by July 15, 2008. For more information about the society and/or to be put on an email list, please visit our web site or contact Lauren Barthold (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jamey Findling (email@example.com).
MISSION STATEMENT: NASPH was formed in 2005 in order to further the study of philosophical hermeneutics. While honoring the roots of philosophical hermeneutics in the work of Hans-Georg Gadamer, NASPH also recognizes that the future of such thinking depends on its engagement with a diverse range of figures and issues. Our intention is to promote dialogical discussions focusing on both the sources of, and the prospects for, philosophical hermeneutics.
