12th International Symposium of Psycholinguistics
Spain

12th International Symposium of Psycholinguistics

July 1-4, 2015 Valencia, Spain

The Symposium of Psycholinguistics is an international conference on any topic related to human language processing, bringing together the different approaches of this interdisciplinary field. Previous editions of the Symposium of Psycholinguistics have taken place every two years since 1993 at different locations in Spain –including 2005 in Valencia (Spain)

The 12th International Symposium of Psycholinguistics will be an open forum for exchange of ideas on theoretical and experimental issues related to how people process language, including, but not limited to topics as visual word recognition, language production, sentence and discourse processing, semantic representation, pragmatics, language pathology, language development, and bilingualism.

We will provide participants of this conference a comfortable environment that we expect will stimulate fruitful scientific discussions.

This is Not a Drill: Confronting Legal Issues in the Wake of International Disasters

Friday February 13, 2015 Vanderbilt Law School Nashville, Tennessee

The Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law is an integral part of the intellectual life at Vanderbilt Law School. The Journal hosts a biennial symposium on current issues of international and comparative law. Recent symposia have drawn participants from around the world to discuss topics such as foreign state immunity, international law and the arctic, and transborder trusts and estates.

The Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law invites you to its 2015 Symposium, This is Not a Drill: Confronting Legal Issues in the Wake of International Disasters.

Recent international disasters, both environmental and humanitarian, have resulted in trails of destruction and destitution, as well as an uncertain legal landscape.  In response to this situation, the International Law Commission (ILC) has completed a draft report addressing the protection of persons when disasters occur.  The Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law’s 2015 Symposium, This is Not a Drill: Confronting Legal Issues in the Wake of International Disasters, will address current international disaster response topics.  The event will focus on an in-depth review of the ILC draft.  Two additional panels will address environmental effects and disaster assistance in the wake of various types of international disasters.  Symposium participants will include leading scholars and policy-makers from across the country and abroad.

University College London Qualitative Health Research Symposium 2015

University College London Qualitative Health Research Symposium 2015

18th February 2015 London, United Kingdom

Interest in qualitative approaches among academic communities concerned with health and illness is evidenced by the rise of mixed methods studies, the proliferation of qualitative health research journals and conferences, and the marked presence of qualitative researchers in academic centres of health research. This reflects the recognition and endorsement of its contribution to research on health, illness and care. However, its inclusion is not straightforward and there can be tensions between the conceptual and methodological approaches of qualitative research and those of a quantitative paradigm generally more familiar to health practitioners, policymakers and often other researchers. These tensions bring to the fore questions to be explored around the applicability, value, contribution, legitimacy and limitations of qualitative inquiry within the prevailing research culture. Ultimately it raises important questions about how qualitative inquiry can enrich interdisciplinary collaborations.

Aim of symposium

Building on our 2013 qualitative health research meeting, we aim in this 2015 symposium to generate a more focused and constructive commentary on the contributions that qualitative inquiry can make to understandings of health, illness and care.

The Human Sciences after the Decade of the Brain--Perspectives on the Neuro-Turn in the Social Sciences and the Humanities

The Human Sciences after the Decade of the Brain--Perspectives on the Neuro-Turn in the Social Sciences and the Humanities

March 30 – March 31, 2015 Philosophy Department, Johannes Gutenberg-University of Mainz, Germany

It is now almost 25 years since the U.S. Congress authorized the then president, George Bush sr., to proclaim the decade beginning January 1, 1990 as the Decade of the Brain. This proclamation stimulated a number of initiatives that substantially benefitted neuroscience research in the following years. Alongside this rise of neuroscience and the corresponding increase of public awareness, many disciplines in the humanities and social sciences have shifted towards more brain based and evolutionary informed approaches. New research fields such as Neuroethics, Neuroeconomics, Cognitive Cultural Studies, Neuroaesthetics or even Neurotheology have gained a following. In addition to surveying the mutual interactions between the cognitive neurosciences and the social sciences and humanities, this interdisciplinary conference investigates the methodological and conceptual prospects and perils of choosing a neuroscience approach to the social sciences and the humanities. The conference aims to shed light on a broad range of epistemological, historical and sociological questions about the purported neuro-turn in the social sciences and the humanities including (but not limited to):

• How and why have brain based approaches to the social sciences and humanities developed?

• What exactly distinguishes cognitive and brain based approaches from their traditional counterparts?

• How are brain-based sub-disciplines of the traditional humanities institutionalized?

• How does research policy contribute to the development of a neuro-turn in the social sciences and the humanities?

• Are there common motives for turning to cognitive neuroscience approaches in the different disciplines of social sciences and humanities? If so, which?

• Are there any historical examples of a turn to brain based approaches in the social sciences and the humanities?

• If so, what could be learned from this history for practicing social sciences and humanities today?

• What, if anything, can the humanities and the social sciences learn from the neurosciences?

• What, if anything, can the neurosciences learn from the social sciences and the humanities?

• How does neuroscience change the social sciences and the humanities?

• How do the humanities and the social sciences change neuroscience?

Phenomenology and Health: An Interdisciplinary Symposium

Phenomenology and Health: An Interdisciplinary Symposium

The Inaugural Conference of the Oxford Phenomenology Network

27-28 March 2015 TORCH (The Oxford Research Centre for Humanities), University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom

This two-day symposium seeks to explore the interrelations between phenomenology and health from a wide variety of perspectives. We aim to stimulate multi-disciplinary discussions between scholars of science and humanities and those engaged in phenomenological practice outside of academia.

Phenomenology is increasingly being employed as both a method of inquiry and a form of practice in a range of healthcare settings. Phenomenological thinking is informing research into the lived experience of long-term health conditions and proving invaluable for psychotherapists, nurses, GPs and others who work closely with clients and patients. Humanities researchers are using phenomenology to interpret and think through representations of health, illness, and disability in literature, art, film, and other forms of historical and contemporary media, and to consider the direct experience of ill people from ethical and ontological perspectives. From Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy of embodiment and Sartre’s thoughts on pain, to important works such as Frederik Svenaeus' The Hermeneutics of Medicine and the Phenomenology of Health (2000) and Havi Carel’s Illness: The Cry of the Flesh (2008), phenomenology provides multiple frameworks for the study and practice of healthcare and the experience of health, illness, pain, and disability.

Aging and Age Studies: Foundations and Formations

North American Network in Aging Studies Conference

May 19-22, 2015 Miami University, Oxford, Ohio

The North American Network in Aging Studies (NANAS) was established in 2013 to bring together scholars and researchers from across a variety of disciplines—humanities, arts, gerontology, anthropology, sociology, health care, and others—interested in critical examinations of how age is conceptualized, defined, experienced, performed, and critiqued. At this inaugural research conference, we seek to build on the foundations of and define new formations in this vital and growing field.
