Conference Program

Thematic Description




These sessions seek to be a convening space to meet the following goals: (i) both lecturers and attendants will always have an active participation; (ii) all the lecturers will always have an audience to hold a debate.


To achieve this, there will be four round tables made up of four (4) lecturers of renowned background, coordinated by a moderator, who will play a key role in leading the debate process. The sessions will be held in the morning and in the afternoon on both days.


The lecturers of each round table will provide an answer to the issues detailed  below, which are also the subject matters each round table will tackle. The main intention is to contribute to the debate concerning certain current issues to be initiated by a suggested question which must be related to the theme of this Meeting.


Apart from the invited lecturers, the sessions will be open to the participation of professionals willing to submit written communications about the general topic or any of the subtopics to be tackled by each round table. Their work, prior approval by the Second International Meeting of Philosophy and Humanities – UNLa –Meeting Academic Commission, will be published in a volume released by the National University of Lanús (UNLa) together with the full versions of the lecturers presentations.


The round tables will feature Argentine professors (both from the National University of Lanús and from other Argentine universities) as well as professors from other countries. The maximum time limit allowed for each lecture is twenty (20) minutes. Next there will be a ten-minute period for questions. There will be a brief break after a sequence of two lectures. Once the four lectures have ended, the moderator will lead the general debate focusing on the specific topic of the round table: (i) among the lecturers themselves, and (2) between the audience and the lecturers. The sessions start in the morning at 9:30 and finish at 13:00. In the afternoon, the sessions start at 15:00 and continue until 18:30 approximately.



Please send 300 words and a brief C.V. to Professors Daniel Dei hdanieldei@gmail.com and cua-rvp@cua.edu until April 30 2015. Presentation of accepted papers will be 20 minutes in length followed by 20 minutes discussion.
