We know many past participants will miss the lovely historic hotel where ASA Eastern has met for many years, but we think you'll like this new location, an historic property in the center of town. The old one is remodeling and eliminating the meeting rooms needed.

Call for Papers
American Society for Aesthetics, Eastern Division Meeting
Philadelphia, PA, April 20-21, 2018

Submission deadline: January 15, 2018.

Papers on any topic in aesthetics are invited, as well as proposals for panels, author-meets-critics, or other special sessions. Papers and proposals from traditionally underrepresented groups (including women, racial minorities, and persons with disabilities, among others) are encouraged. We welcome volunteers to serve as session chairs and commentators.  To submit a paper or panel proposal for consideration you must be a member of the American Society for Aesthetics, and if your paper is accepted you must register for the conference. You can join ASA on-line: Papers should not exceed 3,000 words, should be accompanied by a 100-word abstract, and must be prepared for blind review. Panel proposals must include a general description of the topic or theme, the names and affiliations of all proposed participants, and a long abstract (approximately 1000 words) for each of the presentations.  The abstract should articulate the thesis and central argument(s) of the talk.

For the first time, $1000 will be available for Irene H. Chayes Travel grants, from the American Society for Aesthetics, for paper presenters with no other access to travel funds. To apply, notify meeting organizers that you wish to be considered,  with an estimate of your travel costs. Do not include this in your paper.

Please send submissions in PDF, Word, or RTF format to David Clowney and John Dyck at

Please feel free to direct questions to the Program Co-Chairs: David Clowney (Rowan University) or John Dyck (CUNY - The Graduate Center)
