The Society for Consciousness Studies will hold its annual conference at the Yale Divinity School in 2019. Yale is located in the heart of the historic city of New Haven, Connecticut. 


In 1638, those who founded the New Haven Colony laid out a plan for its future growth; this became known as the "nine square plan". New Haven is likely the first planned city in the United States of America.

Yale was originally established in 1701, but moved to its site in New Haven in 1718. This makes Yale among the oldest universities in the U.S.-- predating even the Revolutionary War. 


Yale was originally established to train ministers in theology and sacred languages, but by 1777 the school’s curriculum began to include humanities and sciences, and in 1861, Yale was the first US university to award a PhD.
