ASA Annual Meeting
November 11 - 14, 2015, Desoto Hilton, Savannah
Papers on any topic in aesthetics or the philosophy of art are invited, as well as proposals for panels, author-meets-critics sessions, and other special sessions. We welcome volunteers to serve as session chairs and commentators. Submissions related to topics in feminism, the philosophy of race, disability studies, and other diversity topics are especially encouraged. (All participants must be members of the American Society for Aesthetics and must register for the conference. A paper cannot be presented at both a regional meeting of the ASA and the Annual Meeting.)
Papers should not exceed 3,000 words, should be accompanied by a 100-word abstract, and must be prepared for blind review. Proposals for panels, author-meets-critics sessions, and other special sessions should include a brief description of the topic or theme, the names and affiliations of all proposed participants, and abstracts of all papers. All submissions must be PDF or Word files. You may submit a paper or be a member of a proposed panel, but not both. Submissions not meeting these requirements will not be considered.
The ASA supports the goals of the Gendered Conference Campaign (GCC, https://feministphilosophers.wordpress.com/gendered-conference-campaign/). In particular, in selecting panels the Program Committee will consider whether steps have been taken to support the GCC, as evidenced by the recruitment and participation of women and members of other historically under-represented and excluded groups.
Full-time students who are on the program at the Annual Meeting (presenting or commenting) are eligible for a travel stipend. Please indicate when you submit your paper (in your email, not in the paper itself) if you will be a full-time student in Fall 2015. (Further information about travel stipends will be made available on the ASA website.)
Please submit papers, panel proposals, and any inquiries to the Program Chair, Andrew Kania (Department of Philosophy, Trinity University), at firstname.lastname@example.org,
