Current future work and projects

Invited article: special issue on theories of self and agency for journal New Ideas in Psychology. Group of professors/editors at Simon Fraser University, Canada; previously utilized my work to develop hermeneutic psychology.

Conference: Hermeneutics and Philosophy of Mind. Project based on suggestion/invitation of Shaun Gallagher, Professor and Chair, Department of Philosophy, University of Central Florida.

The Promise of Language: Lectures on the Linguistic Turn”, book project; evolved from my 4000-level Philosophy of Language course, including chapters on hermeneutics (Schleiermacher, Humboldt, Heidegger, Gadamer), semiotics and discourse analysis (Peirce/Cassirer, Saussure, Foucault, Bourdieu), and analytic philosophy and speech act theory (Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein I, Quine, Davidson, Wittgenstein II, Searle, Habermas). Chapter drafts of lecture successfully used as coursebook, ongoing revisions, publishers interested.

Long term project: “Languages of the Self: The Cultural Grounds of Agency and Autonomy," emerged from sabbatical research project (year-long sabbatical 2003-2004 has been granted by the Dean's office). The initial research was conducted in part throughout visits as guest professor at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria, and as visiting scholar at the University of Prague, Czech Republic. It also includes the project of a co-authored German volume with cultural studies theorist Prof. Rainer Winter, titled “ Kultur und Kritik," including articles on critical social theory and current problems in critical cultural analysis.
