The American Society for Aesthetics is pleased to provide $3,470 to support the Southeastern Student Conference in Aesthetics at College of Charleston on March 18, 2017.
The schedule of student papers is now available.
The conference will be conducted in workshop format. Graduate and undergraduate students will be invited to submit papers up to 3000 words, along with 400-word abstracts, in any aesthetics-related subject for anonymous review. The due date was January 23, 2017. Accepted papers and abstracts will be distributed electronically in advance for all participants to read. At the conference, there will be three 90-minute panels with three students on each panel. Each will have at least one undergraduate presenter.
Sherri Irvin (University of Oklahoma) and Julian Dodd (University of Manchester) will have a plenary roundtable at the conference to present their own work while synthesizing the discussion from the previous sessions.
The primary constituency for the conference is students within easy traveling distance of Charleston. Departments in aesthetics-related departments will be encouraged to bring or send literature on their own aesthetics courses and graduate degrees, where appropriate, to be available at the meeting.
There will be no registration fee for the conference, but advance confirmation RSVPs will be requested by February 10 for distribution of papers and to assist in planning. Students presenting their work will be eligible for reimbursement of up to $325 for travel and lodging, especially if such funds are not available from their home institutions.
This is the first grant by the ASA in response to the Call for Proposals for student conferences in aesthetics. The complete CFP is here:
