ASA Pacific Division Meeting 2015
Share |

Pacific Grove, California
April 8-10, 2015

The Pacific Division met in April in its usual location, the Asilomar Conference Grounds on the coast at Pacific Grove, CA. The program covered a range of themes: artwork ontology and identity; genius and expression; art and philosophy of mind; aesthetic appreciation and testimony; the aesthetics of sport; narrative, fiction and non-fiction; and art and entertainment. A special panel on embodiment and the arts featured talks by Alva Noë and Sean Kelly with critical response from David Davies. Speakers and commentators at the meeting ranged from senior aestheticians and regular Pacific Division attendees to graduate students attending for the first time. The meeting continued its tradition of providing an intimate, friendly environment for intellectual stimulation and challenge (plus the occasional stroll to the ocean). The 2016 meeting will also be held at Asilomar, April 6-8, with William Seeley and Olivier Mathieu as co-chairs (contact email: asapacific2016@gmail.com). The deadline for paper submission is November 1. 2015.
