From the conference website:

The purpose of this conference is to enrich conversations at the intersections of philosophy, psychology, and
theological/religious studies, particularly emphasizing scholarship around the notion of the “Other.” The
term “Other” constitutes a shared space for continental thought, theology, and a variety of psychological
discourses. As an interdisciplinary conference, presentations will explore the rich discourses that have
emerged around the concept of the “Other” in various intellectual traditions, ranging from phenomenological work like that of Emmanuel Levinas to the work of John Zizioulas in theology or that of Jessica Benjamin in psychoanalysis. We invite psychologists, psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, social workers, philosophers, sociologists,anthropologists, theologians, clergy, and graduate students of all persuasions to participate in this year’s event. Our hope is that our conversations and collaborations will challenge and deepen our various disciplines.
