CALL FOR PAPERS
The Architecture Unit of ATINER organizes A Stream on “Architectural Theory-Aesthetic Issues”, 9-12 July, 2018 as part of the 8th Annual International Conference on Architecture sponsored by the Athens Journal of Architecture.
The stream has a goal to encourage theoreticians and practicing architects to explore and present ideas linked to aesthetic issues regarding the art and science of building activity as communication of cultural, social, and political meanings. In that sense, architecture, incorporating other arts, builds and forms metaphorical and symbolical language in order to express such meanings. Scholars and practitioners are particularly welcome to address contemporary issues in the field of aesthetics regarding architecture and build environment, according to its constant transformational and dynamic process of development. Our dynamic age seems to abandon the idea of coherently defined aesthetic values in architectural and urban design, and in that sense new approaches should be proposed and discussed.
Deadline for abstract submission: March 12, 2018.

CFP: Open Call - Aesthetic Intersections 2
Deadline: 31 January 2018
Evental Aesthetics is an independent, double-blind peer-reviewed journal dedicated to philosophical and aesthetic intersections. The journal is open-access, and there are no publication fees. The Editors seek submissions for an unthemed issue in early 2018.
Aesthetic Intersections 2 will be devoted to philosophical matters pertaining to any aesthetic practice or experience, including but not limited to art and everyday aesthetics.
We welcome articles (4,000-8,000 words) and Collisions (1,000-2,500 words). Collisions are brief responses to aesthetic experiences that raise philosophical questions, pointing the way towards suggestive discussions. We're also seeking proposals for Collisions with academic books (EA’s version of book reviews).
Submission and formatting requirements, along with further information on Collisions, are available at http://eventalaesthetics.net/submissions/. Submissions that do not meet our requirements will not be considered. With questions not addressed by the EA website, please contact the Editors.

“Conflicts – Antagonisms, Agonies, Affects”
The Nordic Society of Aesthetics, Annual Meeting, 2018
May 31 – June 2, 2018, Paris, France
Given the political horizon of the 21st century, an era marked by necropolitics, neoliberalism and ubiquitous computing, we invite scholars to investigate the various aesthetic practices and theories that can be used to explore the tensions, sufferings and modes of experience that are parts of the fabric of everyday reality almost twenty years into the century.
Please, find further information on the topic and on the modes of submission in the attached pdf.

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.
Please, find further information on the main topic and on the special sessions (Russian aesthetics, Environmental aesthetics and Indian aesthetics), as well as details regarding the submission in the attached pdf.
