Table of Contents vol 1 : “Space” in Phenomenology of Perception by Merleau-Ponty 

Seminar Coordinator: Omar Al Faleh
Co-directed by Elizaveta Solomonova and MJ Thompson


The Table of Content is a cross-disciplinary, inter-departmental, and inter-university seminar that connects graduate and undergraduate students and researchers through a critical and cross-disciplinary reading in philosophy and other areas in humanities. The texts will be discussed from angles that relate to the expertise and interests of those who are taking part in the seminar rather than a classical reading of literary texts, and will be choreographed and enriched by environmental and networked computational media ambiences that allow for embodied experiences of remote participants by using Topological Media Lab’s Table of Content platform as a communication and interaction portal.
Location: Topological Media Lab (1515 Saint Catherine Street West, EV 7.725)
When: every second Wednesday starting on October 1st and ending on December 3rd 2014
Time: 4:00-6:00pm
