CALL FOR PAPERS
Margins, Futures and Tasks of Aesthetics
Conference of the INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR AESTHETICS
July 5-7, 2018, Helsinki, Finland
Organizers: International Association for Aesthetics, The Finnish Society of Aesthetics & The Department of Art at Aalto University
Aesthetics is a marginal discipline. We often have to defend its existence in departments, where the main focus is on literature, philosophy or art history. It is not surprising that the margins of aesthetics have not been thoroughly discussed. What are the schools of philosophical thinking or the methodologies we haven’t yet turned enough of our attention to? Who and where are the outsiders who will, in the long run, leave an interesting trace on the profession? The aforementioned questions are of course future-oriented. The future of aesthetics has been discussed in various conferences and books. Aesthetics in them is still often seen as more autonomic that it actually is institutionally speaking. What if the future of our discipline was more about collaboration with other disciplines?
Deadline for abstract submissions: January 15, 2018.
