Content

The selection of essays in the 19th Yearbook of the International Association for Aesthetics aims to analyse the phenomenon of retracing the past, i.e. of identifying the signs, details and processes of the creative re-interpretation of long-lasting traditions both in actual works of art and in aesthetic thought, hence where the historical interconnectedness and the influence of earlier sources can appear.

The Center for Chinese Bie-modern Studies (CCBMS) of Georgia Southwestern State University, in collaboration with the Institute of Aesthetics and Aesthetic Education of Shanghai Normal University, will host an International Symposium in October 2017.

For more information on the topic and details of the submission see the attachment.
