On Ugliness (and other aesthetic monsters)

June 17-20, 2016

Ascea, Italy 

~Call for Papers~

 

The negative – whether in judgements of the ugly, experiences of the derelict, or sensations of the revolting – is a phenomenon that is often unacknowledged in the philosophical literature.

Are such features properly to be called aesthetic? Are they qualities of objects, forms of judgement, or types of experiences? The 6th WE international symposium is dedicated to the precise mapping and conceptualization of the ugly and its kind.

Wassard Elea invites philosophers and aestheticians, critics and theorists, to submit papers on any topic in this area. Sessions of 90 min. include speaker, commentator, and discussion (40/20/30). Participants whose papers are accepted are expected to also provide commentary on another presentation during the meeting. All suitable contributions will be published in our quarterly journal, Wassard Elea Rivista.

Inquiries and proposals are welcome. Full papers (in English) are to be submitted to Professor Lars Aagaard-Mogensen, Via La Chiazzetta 27, I-84046 Ascea (Sa), Italy. Emailed submissions, word format, are welcome at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Deadline for papers: March 31, 2016.

Information on registration and accommodations will be posted in advance of the date.
