Please find the program for the joint workshop on May 21-22 of the Phenomenology Research Group (PRG), to take place at Marquette (location TBA). This is the first workshop organized jointly by graduate students at Loyola University Chicago and Marquette University interested in phenomenology. This is the kick-off event of a series of ongoing exchange between both departments to be continued in the fall (alternating between Chicago and Milwaukee). Please spread the news and consider attending. Please RSVP to either me or Greg Trotter (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we know how big a space we need to reserve.
