      Janus Head. A Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies in Continental Philosophy, Literature, Phenomenological Psychology and the Arts



      JANUS HEAD 9.2 (Winter 2006/2007) - Special Issue

      TOPIC: The situated body

      Deadline for submissions: March 1, 2006.

      Guest Editor: Shaun Gallagher (University of Central Florida)

      In recent phenomenological and analytic philosophy, as well as in the cognitive sciences, emphasis has been given to embodiment. Concepts of embodied, enactive, and situated cognition have been developed. This special issue of Janus Head would like to explore questions about how the body is situated in both physical and social environments. What various ways can we characterize a situated body, and how does situatedness affect (or effect) perception, feeling, and cognition more generally? We especially encourage interdisciplinary approaches to these questions, including perspectives informed by phenomenology, philosophy of mind, neuroscience, Gibsonian and developmental psychologies, and discussions of self, the experience of others, narrative, metaphor, architecture, etc.

      We are also soliciting poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, and visual art that, in some way or other, address the topic of "the situated body."

      CRITERIA FOR ESSAYS: Submissions should be no longer than 10,000 words. Works should be typed and double-spaced.
