|2007 ASA Rocky Mountain Division Meeting|
The 2007 Conference of the Rocky Mountain Division of the American Society for Aesthetics was held 13 – 15 July at the historic Hotel St. Francis, Santa Fe, New Mexico. Activities on the 13th began with conference registration and Opening Remarks by President Stewart. The Division welcomes critical papers in all fields and disciplines, pertaining to the history, application and appreciation of aesthetic understanding. We are always particularly interested in research into interdisciplinary and intercultural approaches emphasizing the natural character of the American Southwest. Sustaining the interdisciplinary character of the Division’s work, papers and discussions explored topics deriving from the fields of contemporary and historical aesthetics, philosophy, art history, cinema, English literature, aesthetics and postmodernism, American literature, sociology, fiction, studies of the American Southwest (especially landscapes and Navajo weaving), Buddhism, religion, classical music performance and Peirce studies, and others.
