Chi-Hé Elder is a Lecturer in Linguistics in the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies at the University of East Anglia. She completed her PhD on the pragmatics of conditionals at the University of Cambridge before moving to UEA as a postdoctoral research fellow, where she examined the structure of communication and the role of misunderstandings in pragmatic theorisation. She is now developing that work in different discourse domains, and has a particular interest in the relationship between on record, publicly available meanings, and off record private meaning intentions. She teaches on a range of topics at undergraduate and postgraduate levels on pragmatics and intercultural communication.

Tim Huttel (M.A., Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany, 2019) is a PhD student at the Graduate School ‘Power of Interpretation’ (‘Deutungsmacht’) at the University of Rostock. His PhD project focuses on the role of interpretation in determining the process and outcome of (shared) practical deliberation. As interpretation seems to have an irreducible and prominent personal aspect, an examination of its power in practical regard seems to catch a crucial aspect of the personal ethical freedom to set one’s own ends. Picking up some Nietzschean thoughts and trying to contain some of their unpleasant consequences, the research aims at an understanding of deliberative ethics that gives priority to this personal capacity over preconceived notions of ‚right‘ and ‚good‘ - without sacrificing all grounds for reasonable dispute over the validity of ethical claims.

Dina Mendonça (Ph.D. University of South Carolina, USA 2003), ArgLab, IFILNOVA, NOVA FCSH, UNL, researches on Philosophy of Emotions and Philosophy of Education with a special concentration in Philosophy for Children. Her research focuses on developing a Situated Approach to Emotions, which takes emotions as dynamic and active situational occurrences (Mendonça 2012). This pragmatist research of Deweyan inspiration aims at elaborating a critical interpretation of philosophical reflections on emotions clarifying different problems and advantages of different methodological and philosophical approaches as well as identifying the key issues emotions theories (Paradox of Fiction, shared emotions, etc.) and further complexities of the emotional landscape (variability of valence of emotions, meta-emotional processes, etc.) In addition, she teaches Didactics of Philosophy concentrating on the role of writing for the education and improvement of thinking skills, and also creates original material for the application of philosophy to all schooling stages, and as an aid for creative processes.

Hili Razinsky (PhD Hebrew University of Jerusalem) is a researcher at LanCog, Centre of Philosophy, University of Lisbon. She is currently working on articles and a book about concrete inter-subjectivity, a notion which captures interaction, linguistic communication, and relationships between persons. she analyses interaction and its relations with personhood as ontologically tension-fraught, exhibits the fruitful implications for the moral imperative to others, and attends to diverse phenomena and to interactive-bound issues including systemic sociality, language, politics, groups, care, reification, and marginal interactivity. Her work on ambivalence shows that a person is unitary in maintaining opposed attitudes towards something, and that ambivalence is pervasive, takes many forms, and can be significantly active as well as cognitive. Together with ambivalence, her research relearns subjectivity, rationality, emotion, belief, action, value, consciousness, language, ethics and politics.
