Call for Papers

Deadline: August 31, 2018

The American Society for Aesthetics Board of Trustees has awarded $3,500 to support the Southern California Student Conference in Aesthetics. The conference, to be held November 16-17, 2018 at the University of San Diego, was organized by Nick Riggle (University of San Diego) and Clinton Tolley (University of California, San Diego). Featured keynote speaker for the conference will be A.W. Eaton, Associate Professor of Philosophy, University of Illinois, Chicago. The conference is co-sponsored with the USD Humanities Center and the USD Values Institutte.

The conference will support and promote graduate and undergraduate work in aesthetics, primarily for students in the general Southern California region. The Call for Papers, to be announced soon, will invite students to submit papers of no more than 4000 words, along with abstracts of no more than 300 words. The deadline for submission will be August 31, with decisions made shortly after and no later than the end of September.

After anonymous review of the submissions, seven student papers will be selected with travel support of up to $300 each, provided by the ASA grant. Each student paper will be scheduled for a one-hour session to include presentation by the student of the paper, followed by commentary by a southern California-area faculty member or graduate student, and discussion. In addition, the conference will include a panel discussion on current trends in aesthetics with Professors Riggle, Tolley, and Eaton.

The conference will be free, but advance RSVPs will be requested no later than October 15. Papers to be presented will be distributed to registered participants before the meeting to encourage more thorough-going discussion with the presentators and commentators.

Additional information will be posted on the ASA web site as soon as available.
