Genetic Phenomenology / Genetische Phänomenologie
University of Cologne, July 25–29, 2016

Die genetische Phänomenologie Husserls soll in dieser Summer School ausgehend von ihren zentralen Methodenfragen und Themen vorgestellt werden: vorprädikative Erfahrung, der Leib in der Sicht der Phänomenologie, die Verbindung von Phänomenologie und Psychologie, der Zugang zum Anderen, intersubjektive Konstitution, Geschichte, Phantasie und Lebenswelt.
Vormittags gibt es jeweils zwei Vorlesungen mit Diskussion, am Nachmittag schließen sich dann entweder eingehende Textdiskussionen an oder Teilnehmer können ihre Promotionsvorhaben vorstellen und diskutieren.

This Summer School will present Husserl’s genetic Phenomenology by concentrating on central methodic questions and characteristic topics: prepredicative experience, the lived body, the relation of phenomenology and psychology, the access to other persons, intersubjective constitution, history, phantasy and life-world. Each day starts with two lectures with discussion, and in the afternoon there are sessions dedicated to textual discussions. It is also possible for doctoral students to present their projects. 

The lecturers are: Prof. Dr. Saulius Geniusas (Chinese University of Hongkong), Prof. Dr. Sebastian Luft (Marquette/Paderborn), Prof. Dr. Andrea Staiti (Boston College/Cologne), Prof. Dr. Christian Ferencz-Flatz (Bucarest/Köln), Prof. Dr. J.  Jagna Brudzińska (Köln/Warschau), Prof. Dr. Alice Pugliese (Palermo), Prof. Dr. D. Lohmar (Köln), Dr. Emanuele Caminada (a.r.t.e.s. Cologne), Marco Cavallaro MA (Köln).

We are planning for a medium level that should inform intensively on the different aspects of Husserl’s Genetic Phenomenology, but we are also open for discussions of questions on the level of doctoral students and postdocs.

This course will also be handled as a "Hauptseminar" for students of Cologne University. For those students of the University of Cologne who want to obtain a qualified certificate for this Hauptseminar, a written paper on a topic to be determined is expected.
This international Summer School is open for students from all countries. The courses will be held mostly in English.

Because we have no financial support to offer for participants we strongly encourage you to apply for short term grants at your university or other institutions.

Location: University of Cologne, Main Building, Room 4.011
