The Board of Trustees of the American Society for Aesthetics has approved a grant of $2,550 USD in partial support of the Salish Sea Aesthetics Workshop November 20-22, 2020, at the Marriott Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia. The Workshop will be held in conjunction with the 57th Annual Meeting of the Western Canadian Philosophical Association. 

Project directors are David Friedell (University of British Columbia), James O. Young (University of Victoria) and Michel-Antoine Xhignesse (Capilano University). 

Paul C. Taylor, the W. Alton Jones Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University, will give the keynote address, supported by the Lansdowne Endowment Fund. He is a former trustee of the ASA and author of Black is Beautiful: A Philosophy of Black Aesthetics, winner of the ASA Outstanding Monograph Prize.

The Aesthetics Workshop will consist of eleven session over the three days of the Meeting. The workshop builds on the Salish Sea Aesthetics Workshop in 2019 at the University of British Columbia, also supported by ASA, and furthers the establishment of a regional forum for aestheticians in the region of the Salish Sea. The region (sometimes referred to as the Pacific Northwest) stretches roughly from Portland, Oregon to British Columbia. Salish Sea is the indigenous name for the region.

The call for papers will be announced in April, with a submission deadline of August 1 and decisions announced by September 1. All papers will be reviewed anonymously, with final decisions on the aesthetics papers by the three workshop organizers. Commentators will be recruited for each paper, with a special focus on promoting interdisciplinary dialogue with other areas of philosophy. 

ASA funding will also support a prize of $250 CDN for the best student essay in aesthetics. ASA membership will not be required for aesthetics papers for the workshop, but will be required for eligibility for the essay prize. 

As more information becomes available, it will be posted on the ASA web site, the ASA Newsletter, and other venues.
