The Board of Trustees of the American Society for Aesthetics has approved up to $2000 to support a speaker in aesthetics at the 19th Annual Rutgers Summer Institute for Diversity in Philosophy. The Institute, directed by Professor Howard McGary, will be held at Rutgers University July 10-17, 2016.

More information about the Institute is here.

Dr. Jane Forsey, Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Winnipeg, was the ASA-sponsored speaker for the 2015 Institute.

A call for applications to be the ASA sponsored speaker for 2016 has been announced:

The American Society for Aesthetics seeks applications to serve as a speaker on aesthetics at the 19th Annual Rutgers Summer Institute for Diversity in Philosophy, which will be held July 10-17, 2016. The ASA-sponsored speaker will attend the Institute for two days, give a 2-1/2 hour presentation (including a question and answer period), and take meals with the students. The Institute is a seven-day residential program designed to encourage undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds to consider careers in academic philosophy. About 15-20 students will be in attendance. The speaker will receive a $400 honorarium, plus travel, lodging, and meals at Rutgers.

Applicants to be the ASA speaker must be current members of the ASA. Applicants should send a current CV (or URL of a current CV) and a brief statement (no more than 500 words) of the proposed presentation. These should be sent by e-mail no later than March 8, 2016, to Julie Van Camp, Secretary-Treasurer at secretary-treasurer@aesthetics-online.org. A decision by ASA on finalists is expected no later than March 15. The final speaker selection will be made by the Rutgers program.
