Colloquium: Imagination in Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences

Colloquium of the Association for Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences

Hosted by Richmond University, London, England

James Morley (Convener)

July 22-23, 2002


The Association for Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences is sponsoring a colloquium in London in the tradition of our previous seminars in Copehnhagen and Paris. Space is limited to 25 participants. The format involves presentation of short papers with emphasis on follow-up discussion.

Imagination is a topic explored by both phenomenologists and cognitive scientists. This colloquium aims to bring together researchers from all relevant disciplines to dialogue on the cognitive and phenomenological processes involved in imaginative acts.

Practical information:

Richmond College is located on the site of an early Victorian seminary next to the vast Richmond Deer park. The village of Richmond is perhaps the most beautiful part of London as it overlooks the cow meadows of the upper Thames and is filled with very quaint (as Americans say) or twee (as British say) tea shops and pubs.

Following past practice, funding will be the responsibility of the individual participants. To enhance the intimate work group atmosphere of the meeting, all participants are asked to use the rustic dormitory accommodations and share meals together. Breakfast and lunch will be included in the dormitory registration. Dinners will be held at local restaurants. A Thames boat ride may be organized if there is sufficient interest. You may be aware that London is fast becoming the most expensive city on Earth. But we have made great efforts to provide the most inexpensive accommodation possible. To assist in our efforts to keep administrative costs down and to promote conference continuity we ask participants to enroll in the whole all-inclusive package.

All inclusive package:

Sunday evening -- July 21 accommodation, -- 28 pounds
Monday -- July 22 -- breakfast, lunch and accommodation -- 40 pounds
Tuesday -- July 23 -- breakfast, lunch and accommodation -- 40 pounds
Registration fee - 20 pounds

Total: 128 British pounds (205 euros, 186 US dollars)

NOTE: Credit card payments are possible. Please call 44-20-8332-8223 and ask to speak to 'Kathryn Simmonds of the Richmond University accounts office. ' She will take your credit card details.

Because of limited space, registration must, unfortunately, follow a first come first served basis. To ensure reservation at this very inexpensive rate of accommodation, we urge participants to post their checks or money orders as soon as possible. Otherwise, the only other alternative will be London Hotel fees at peak season. Also, Please indicate interest in a Conference Boat ride.

Travel and Directions

Because of high volume, London air rates tend to be inexpensive. British Air is a good Airline, but Internet deals abound -- even at peak season! Directions to Richmond can be discerned from a glance at any Underground map.

From Heathrow take the Piccadilly Line to Turnham Green. Then, take the District line to Richmond Station (3 one way). Then, take a (4) cab to "Richmond College at the top of Richmond Hill." The main entrance is easily visible.
