Personhood, Possession and Place: Embodiment and Emplacement in Special Contexts
Conference Dates: Tuesday, May 28- Wednesday, May 29
This conference explores the social, cognitive, philosophical, and religious dynamics of personhood. We are interested in alterations of subjectivity, altered states of embodiment and emplacement, and cross-disciplinary theories of transient selves. We welcome proposals for full panels and individual papers from graduate students of any discipline on topics that touch upon the ways in which people understand personhood and the possibilities of its creation, transformation, and loss.
