Copenhagen Summer School 2021 in Phenomenology and Philosophy of Mind

We are delighted to announce that the 11th Summer School in Phenomenology and Philosophy of Mind will take place in 2021.

Due to the pandemic, the 2021 summer school will be organized as a hybrid event, where participants who are unable to travel to Copenhagen will be able to attend lectures and participate in discussions online.

In the unlikely event that it will be impossible to host a larger physical meeting at the campus in Copenhagen, the summer school will be conducted fully online.

Place:  University of Copenhagen, Njalsgade 134 (entrance from Emil Holms Kanal 2) Aud. 23.0.49, Copenhagen

Time: 9-13 August 2021

The Copenhagen Summer School in Phenomenology and Philosophy of Mind is an annual event organized by the Center for Subjectivity Research and co-funded by the PhD School at the Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen.

The Summer School will provide essential insights into central themes within the philosophy of mind, viewed from a phenomenological perspective. It will consist of a mixture of keynote lectures, PhD presentations and seminars (32 hours total), aimed at advanced MA students and PhD students. Post Docs are also encouraged to apply.
