1st Collaborative Workshop Villanova/Lisbon

Phenomenology & Critical Theory: Exploring Common Grounds

25 March 2022 (Online)

10:00 am – 2:00 pm (Philadelphia, EDT)

14h00 – 18h00 (Lisbon, GMT+0)


The goal of this workshop is to create a collaborative space where scholars sharing methodological questions and interests in these fields can meet and discuss. Our goal is to question the sense of critique in phenomenology and connect it to other critical theories. This workshop is part of a wider collaborative project guided by the intention to ground historically and politically the idea of critical phenomenology today.
