The Journal of Aesthetics and Phenomenology aims to encourage and promote research in aesthetics that draws inspiration from the phenomenological tradition as broadly understood, where “phenomenology” is inclusive of, but goes beyond the limits of, intellectual practices associated with the tradition and its well-known representative thinkers. Unique in the English speaking world, the journal welcomes scholarly articles written in a phenomenological vein as well as analyses of aesthetic phenomena by researchers working on phenomenology within analytic philosophy.
The field of the Journal of Aesthetics and Phenomenology is further defined by its close connections with the arts and culture, including the reality of human experience and its environment. Besides philosophical rigor, the journal puts emphasis on both creativity of ideas and precision of language. It provides a platform for new innovative ideas crossing the boundaries of both philosophical traditions and traditionally accepted fields of research in aesthetics.

CALL FOR PAPERS IAA CONFERENCE 28– 30 June 2012
SIE, Società Italiana d'Estetica
Laboratory for Research on the City, University of Bologna
The 2012 Interim meeting of the Executive Committee (EC) of the IAA will take place in June 28-30 2012 at sala Farnese, Piazza Maggiore, Bologna. The theme is “Nature and the City”. All researchers and scholars interested in this topic are invited to participate in the conference with a paper.
Only Word documents will be accepted, the suggested font type and dimension are Times New Roman and 11, the number of page shall be between 5 and 15.
In order to select the paper that will be presented during the conference abstracts will be evaluated by a group of experts.
Theme: Nature and the City
The city, too, is landscape. We can leave it by going into nature exchanging the urban for the rural, but we can also enter the city to live within the architecture and contemplate its forms. Every architectural structure is a landscape and promotes an educational or paedeumatic relationship between the spirit and the environment. Our gaze and our bodies activate a certain way of contemplating that promotes the interchange between the external perception of the physical world and an internal seeing, which is the psychic perception of the visual image. There is a close relationship between the aesthetic experience of the natural environment and that of the urban landscape. In the same way that humankind lives on the earth so, too, it lives in the city.
The theme could be approached from various perspectives such as, 'nature/culture'; 'city as human nature'; 'ecology and the city'; symbols and metaphors; domesticated nature; nature interiorized; parks and natural environments, and other related issues.
Possible topics: City Landscapes, The Garden City, History of City/Nature relations, Nature-Culture, Nature and the City from Ecological, Design, Artistic aspects.
Students and Ph.D. students 60 euro
Academics and all Participants 120 euro
The admission fee covers the attendance to the whole conference, related materials, two light lunches and the social dinner.

Workshop Title: Art and Medicine at the Intersection of the Humanities

In recent years there has been growing interest in the relationship of Art and Medicine, as seen, for example, in the medical humanities courses offered in medical schools and by the parallel, yet less marked scholarly attention given to the subject in Art History departments.
As a relatively new field of research, Art and Medicine is situated at the intersection of the humanities, the arts, and healthcare. Distinguishing itself from the more conventional study of the cultural history of medicine, it seeks to explore the role of medicine in the various arts—literature, painting, sculpture, film, performance, music etc.—and concomitantly—to study the role of art in the medical humanities.
The inter- or more correctly, multi-disciplinary, attempt to propose a unifying perspective for the two ‘faculties’—of art and medicine—is based on both historical and modern approaches to their shared theoretical and practical features—cognitive, physiological, psychological, and phenomenological. Beyond the aesthetic notion of art as the creation of beauty, its curative powers, ascribed to its cathartic functions, have been debated since antiquity. If art has direct and indirect healing powers, it cannot but be an integral part of medical training; and, by the same token, themes and concerns of medicine—both particular and general—should gain atten-tion in the study of art history.
The main goal of this workshop is to discuss the current research status of Art and Medicine and historical and contemporary approaches to their joint study.
I invite scholars working in these and related fields to consider presenting a paper on the various aspects—historical, ethical, theoretical, practical etc.—of the issues raised by Art and Medicine at the intersection of the humanities.

- Renaissance Artists Researching Human Anatomy
