The American Society for Aesthetics Board of Trustees has approved a grant of $6,000 in support of an international two-day conference on Food, Art and Philosophy, at the Institute of Philosophical Research (IPR) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Mexico City.

UPDATE: The conference will be held October 3-4, 2019.

The conference is organized by Dr. Paloma Atencia LinaresResearch Associate at the Institute of Philosophical Research at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, UNAM, and Dr. Aaron Meskin, currently Professor of Philosophical Aesthetics at the University of Leeds. (He will become Head of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Georgia next July.)

The conference, which will be free and open to the public, will include presentations by Prof. Axel Barceló (UNAM), Prof. Ophelia Deroy (LMU), Dr. Eileen John (Warwick) and Prof. Mohan Matthen.   The three remaining talks will be by speakers who will be selected on the basis of a publicly and internationally advertised call for papers. One of them will be a postgraduate student, who will receive a travel grant funded by the ASA from the grant. All presentations will be in English.

The program will also include an interdisciplinary panel with Sarah Bak-Geller (Anthropology, UNAM), Miriam Bertran (History and Sociology, UAM), and Juan Escalona (Chef).

The Call for Papers will be announced shortly on the ASA web site and Facebook pages.

This is the first event that ASA has funded in Mexico.
