Call for Papers and Works
Second Annual Philosophy and the Arts
Conference at Stony Brook Manhattan
March 27-28, 2009
Keynote Speaker—Dr. Richard Kearney,
Charles B. Seelig Chair of Philosophy at Boston College

The Masters program in Philosophy and the Arts at Stony Brook
University in Manhattan studies the intersections of art and
philosophy. In our efforts to further the dialogue between
traditionally disparate fields of study, we offer this conference as
an interdisciplinary event. We welcome participants from a variety of
fields and media to respond to this year’s topic:


Narrativity can be construed in many ways. We might understand it as
the testimonial quality of subjective accounts and expressions, the
process of reception and interpretation by an audience, or even as the
force that impels our narrative-making amidst concurrent impressions
and experiences. Art and philosophy offer some of the most incisive
interpretations and portrayals of narrativity as it unfolds in
history, culture, and daily life. Where the rendering of narrativity
evokes tension between intended trajectories and their disruption,
between compulsion and material constraints, we open our discussion.
The goal of our conference is to create a diverse, inviting dialogue
on narrative accounts of subjective experience and reality through art
and theory.
