The conference, Perspectives on Intercorporeality and Intersubjectivity, is also being held at UCD over June 6th and 7th 2008. Attendees to the Post-Graduate Conference 2008 may be interested in extending their stay in Dublin to include the II Conference, particularly if they intend attending ECIS in Galway the following week.
The II Conference is intended to be an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of ideas on the theme of intercorporeality and intersubjectivity, exploring the manners and modes in which subjects relate to each other as embodied beings. Intercorporeality is an important theme which has come up in fields as diverse as management studies, artificial intelligence, ethics and education and warrants further theoretical investigation. Exploring intercorporeal relations will elucidate and enrich our understanding of intersubjective encounters and the role they play in establishing and constituting philosophical themes such as identity, ethics, subjectivity, cognition and discourse.
