This conference will be held virtually.

The American Society for Aesthetics is pleased to announce that the ASA Board of Trustees has approved the award of $3,000 in partial support of the conference "Art, Desire, and God: Phenomenological Perspectives." The conference will be virtually hosted at the University of Notre Dame on October 2-3, 2020, and has been organized by Kevin Grove, C.S.C., Taylor Nutter, and Christopher C. Rios. All papers will be delivered remotely and observed online.


DEADLINE: June 1, 2020

ASA funding will support the costs of two keynote speakers on phenomenological aesthetics and the conference theme, Richard Kearney (Boston College) and J. Aaron Simmons (Furman University). The conference, which will be free and open to the public, will include papers by junior faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students, with commentary by faculty members at the University. The project aims to promote intersectional dialogue between philosophy and theology on the topics of art, desire, and God, as well as research in phenomenological aesthetics. The organizers aim to encourage scholars outside aesthetics to actively engage with art and aesthetics in their own intellectual questioning as a legitimate source of meaning.
