Convenors' Letter (January, 2017)

Dear members and friends of the Husserl Circle,

As you already know, the 48th Annual Meeting of the Husserl Circle will be held on July 5-8 (Wednesday through Saturday), 2017, at Rethymno, Crete under the auspices of the University of Crete, Greece and the Department of Philosophy and Social Studies.

The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2017 (12pm GMT). Your submissions should be prepared for blind review and can be sent to Panos Theodorou or Fotini Vassiliou. Presenters will have approximately 30 minutes (about 3900 words). You can submit either a full paper with a short 150-word abstract or a more substantial abstract (about 500 words) outlining the paper in a clear manner. Preference will be given to full paper submissions. Decisions will be communicated by March 1, 2017.

Let us make as clear as possible that all topics on Husserl’s phenomenology are, as usually, welcome. Given the fact, however, that it is rather rare to come across Husserlian-phenomenological papers on issues related to aesthetics, politics, and action—urgent topics in our turbulent times—we thought that it would be good to encourage scholars to focus also on them.

The conference venue is located at the town of Rethymno and is surrounded by many hotels, restaurants, cafés and bars. Special offers we have been given by the hotels listed below.

1. Rimondi Butique Hotels (info@hotelsrimondi.com)
Standard Room: 140,00 € (with breakfast)
Superior Room: 160 € (with breakfast)
Maisonette: 180 € (with breakfast)

2. Kyma Beach and Kriti Beach (kokonas@ok-rethymno.gr)
Single-bed room: 106 € (with breakfast)
Double/two-bed room: 135 € (with breakfast)
Superior double-bed room: 190 € (with breakfast)

3. Jo-An City Hotel (palace@joan-hotels.gr)
Single-bed Room: 55 € (with breakfast)
Double/two-bed room: 75 € (with breakfast)

Limited number of rooms at special prices (€ 30 per night, for single-bed rooms) will be available at a cozy small hotel (“The House of Europe”) owned by the local University.

Note, however, that Rethymno is a tourist destination which means that there are plenty of hotels within and around the close vicinity of the city. There are a lot of rooms available, but it would be a good idea to try to make the booking as early as possible. Of course, once you come, you will find many exciting places to visit, from the mythical place of Zeus’ birth in a cave up on mount Psiloritis to the island of Santorini (there are organized one day boat tours from Rethymno).

For your transportation you should know that:

► Ferries run daily from Piraeus (the port of Athens in mainland Greece) to either Chania (65 km from Rethymno) or Heraklio (85 km from Rethymno). Ferry tickets may be acquired through Minoan or Anek ferry companies.

► Both airports of Crete, one at Chania and the other at Heraklio, are served by multiple airlines. You can reach them directly from many other European airports, especially during the tourist season.

► Rethymno is easily accessible by bus (every hour) from both Chania (60 min, 6,80 €) and Heraklio (90 min, 8.30 €)

► Taxis cost about 85 € from Chania and 100 € from Heraklio.

In case you have any questions, please feel free to contact Panos Theodorou or Fotini Vassiliou.

A site with information about the 48th Husserl Circle meeting is under construction (its link will appear here: www.fks.uoc.gr/english/index.php).

We look forward to welcoming you in Rethymno next July!

Cretan greetings to all of you,

the convenors:

Panos Theodorou and Fotini Vassiliou.

Dear Colleague,

The 47th annual meeting of the Husserl Circle held at Loyola University Chicago this past June was an immense success. Special thanks are in order to Convenor Hanne Jacobs, who did a superb job of assembling a first-rate program and attending to every need of the many members and friends of the Circle in attendance. The level of presentation and discussion was once again very high.

The next meeting of the Husserl Circle, convened by Panos Theodorou and Fotini Vassiliou, will take place in Rethymno, Crete, July 5-8 (Wednesday-Saturday), 2017. A letter with preliminary information from the Convenors is attached.

Future meetings of the Husserl Circle will include the 2018 meeting in Mexico City, hosted by Antonio Zirion, and the 2019 meeting in Lisbon, Portugal, hosted by Carlos Lobo.

Please remember that information regarding this year’s meeting will be posted on the Circle’s webpage (www.husserlcircle.org).
