Symposia 2022

June 9 & 10, 2022, 4-6pm EST, via zoom

In lieu of participating in virtual Congress this year, we are hosting a pair of invited talks. We invite you to join us for presentations and discussions of recent work by Helen A. Fielding and Mar’yana Svarnyk.

“Generality, Background, and Ground in the Phenomenology of a Painting by Lawren S. Harris”

Mar’yana Svarnyk

I will talk about the challenges one encounters when trying to do body phenomenology of non-thing or non-entities, and about how one might begin to work around these challenges. Taking hints from both Merleau-Ponty and Heidegger, I look for ways of adjusting the way we approach that which meets us, so that we can gradually begin to experience, feel out, and then also describe what we initially considered to be invisible, intangible, and indescribable.

Thursday, June 9th from 4-6pm EST, via zoom

Recent publication by Mar’yana Svarnyk: Heidegger’s Holy and Quiet Joy: Body Hermeneutics of Two Paintings by Lawren S. Harris, doctoral dissertation, 2021

“A Phenomenology of Changing an Intersensory World”

Helen A. Fielding

Drawing from my book, I will discuss how artworks can help cultivate our perception of the real as the interrelationality that generates meaning from particular points of view.  Cultivating our perception can help us to think about how we are to dwell together in a global world.

Friday, June 10th from 4-6pm EST, via zoom
Commentaries: Bryan Smyth and Nina Belmonte

Recent publication by Helen A. Fielding: Cultivating Perception Through Artworks: Phenomenological Enactments of Ethics, Politics and Culture, Indiana UP, 2021
