The 77th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Aesthetics will be held in Phoenix, Arizona.

ASA is pleased to announce that John Kulvicki, Dartmouth College, will be the Program Chair for this meeting. 

Call for Proposals

DEADLINE: January 15, 2019

The ASA welcomes submissions on all aspects of aesthetics and the philosophy of art.

Papers are limited to 3000 words, must be accompanied by 100-word abstracts, and be formatted for anonymous review. These rules will be strictly enforced. Proposals for panels and author-meets-critics sessions must include a brief description of the topic, names and affiliations of all participants, and 500-word abstracts of all papers. Note that we plan to accept very few submitted panels.

Participants may submit a paper, or be part of a submitted panel, but not both. Papers may not be presented at both a regional ASA meeting and the Annual Meeting. All participants must be members of the ASA and register for the meeting. Non-members may submit papers or panel proposals, but must join the ASA within thirty days of acceptance of their contribution, or be removed from the program.

The ASA supports the Gendered Conference Campaign. In evaluating submitted panels and author-meets-critics sessions, the Program Committee will consider whether steps have been taken to include women and members of historically underrepresented and excluded groups.

Submissions should be made through the same platform, Submittable, that was used last year.

Please address all correspondence to the Program Chair, John Kulvicki (Dartmouth College), at ASA2019Phoenix@gmail.com .

Travel support

IRENE H. CHAYES TRAVEL FUND: Commencing in 2018, the Annual Meeting will award six travel grants of $1,250 each to support travel to the annual meeting for persons with papers accepted for the program who have no other access to travel funds at their institution(s) during the academic year.

To be eligible for a travel grant from these funds:

*You must be a member of ASA in good standing in the calendar year of the paper presentation and you must register for the meeting.
*Eligible persons include faculty members (including lecturers, adjuncts, and part-timers) and independent scholars.
*If you have some access to travel funds from your institution, but prefer to use it for a different meeting, you are not eligible for a Chayes Travel Grant this year.

To apply for a travel grant this year:

*Submit your paper as you normally would by the announced deadline of January 15, 2019
*Do not include any mention of the Chayes fund in your paper or abstract.
*In the new paper submission system, indicate separately that you wish to be considered for a Chayes travel grant, if your paper is accepted, and explain briefly why you are eligible.
*The program committee will make the final decisions on which persons receive a Chayes travel grant. If more than six persons with accepted papers are eligible, the committee will decide which, based on merit, programmatic, and diversity priorities, should get the award.

For the Irene H. Chayes Travel Grants, "paper" includes both individually submitted papers and panel presentations.
