Alone Together Again
The Second International Pandisciplinary Symposium On Solitude in Community
(Second call for papers)
This is the second call for papers for the Alone Together Again symposium in Szczecin, Poland.
“We must meet; we must communicate with one another; we must, it would seem, be alone together” (John Macmurray)
We welcome contributions to the second international pandisciplinary symposium on solitude in community: Alone Together Again, which will take place in Szczecin, Poland, between 16th and 18th April 2020. This is organised by the University of Szczecin (Poland) and York St John University (United Kingdom), under the auspices of the Rector of the University of Szczecin. All papers and discussions will be held in English.
We welcome papers on any issues related to solitude, silence and loneliness, from any discipline, and from researchers from all over the world. Our first symposium involved over 30 papers from nine countries, with participants from education, philosophy, theology, linguistics, business studies, psychology, counselling, gerontology, and more. It resulted in a contract for an academic handbook, and a journal special edition; we have another journal special edition associated with this second symposium. The submission of abstracts will be welcome till the 15th January 2020. (Later submissions will be considered if there is still room on the programme.)
Detailed information about abstracts, the symposium venue, and booking procedures is available on our website: https://ata.usz.edu.pl/. The website also has details of the plenary papers already arranged.
If you are able, please pass on this information to networks with which you are involved.
And in the meantime, we hope you have an inspiring new year!
All the best,
Julian Stern and Małgorzata Wałejko
on behalf of the ATA Organizational Committee
