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 (email@example.com) so we know how big a space we need to reserve.

For those of you who don’t know about the PRG, here’s the blurb from their site’s “About” section (also, shame on you!):
The Phenomenology Research Group (PRG) at Loyola University Chicago is a joint student-faculty initiative dedicated to advancing research in phenomenology. The PRG is open to the entire academic community of Loyola University, Chicago, the greater Midwest, and beyond. Inter-disciplinary approaches are welcome. Seminars and workshops will be held on a regular basis to present research and inspire new directions in contemporary phenomenology.
The PRG was founded in 2012 by Dr. Hanne Jacobs, Thomas Bretz, Rebecca Scott, Giancarlo Tarantino, Sean Petranovich, and Mike Gutierrez.
This group is an exciting development for the department and for phenomenologists in and around Chicago. For those of you are interested in being involved and/or following the work that they’re doing, there’s a link to their Facebook page (and their site) in the right sidebar on this blog. You can subscribe to their newsletter here.
Keep up the good work, y’all!
