Since 2007 Back to the Things Themselves! (BTTTT!) has been an annual attempt to affect a liberation from textual exegesis and critique, and to return to the lived world to divine the essential structures of experience through rigorous phenomenological description. While BTTTT! is guided by important scholarly contributions about phenomenology, its main aim is to “do phenomenology”—that is, to generate original descriptions of phenomena in the lifeworld.
BTTTT! invites those engaged in phenomenological practice to submit their original descriptions for consideration for our 2021 meeting at the University of Alberta.
Before submitting your abstract and paper please carefully review our dos and don’ts. Please note that our biggest challenge has always been to attract submissions that are squarely focused on rigorous phenomenological description.
Please feel free to forward this email to other interested scholars. We also invite interested parties to click on the “Follow” button at the bottom of our web page, as we will soon be phasing out our email distribution list.
