The theme of the conference is Narratives from the World of the Sensible. Whether we are or are not aware of it, we all owe our being and existence to the world of the sensible. It is where we encounter each other. The encounter is of the sensible  by the sensible. The reciprocity of the encounters take place in the sensible. In being human, these encounters exend to nature The encounter does not take us away fto what is foreign to us, for nature is itself sensible. In nature, we ecnounter ourselves as belonging to the sensible The sensile is our common dweling. 

We invite abstracts  that draw  inspiration from the sensible, that pay attention to it, and that affirm  our shared dwelling in it. The conference seeks companionship with those who are interested in deepening, broadening, and sharing their sensorial experiences. It is interdisciplinary and welcomes both academics and non-academics. Abstract are due on January 31, 2018. Send abstract to
