DEADLINE: January 15, 2020

The Eastern Division of the American Society for Aesthetics is pleased to announced the Call for Papers for its 2020 meeting, to be held in Philadelphia April 17-18, 2020, at the Courtyard Marriott in Center City.

The keynote speaker will be Sandra Shapshay, who will be Professor of Philosophy at Hunter College in New York this fall. The Monroe Beardsley lecture will be delivered by Richard Eldridge, Charles and Harriett Cox McDowell Professor of Philosophy at Swarthmore College

Papers on any topic in aesthetics are invited, as well as proposals for panels, author-meets-critics, or other special sessions. Papers and proposals from traditionally underrepresented groups (including women, racial minorities, and persons with disabilities, among others) are encouraged. We welcome volunteers to serve as session chairs and commentators. To submit a paper or a panel proposal for consideration you must be a member of the American Society for Aesthetics, and if your paper is accepted you must register for the conference. You can join ASA online: http://aesthetics-online.orgPapers should not exceed 3,000 words, should be accompanied by a 100-word abstract, and must be prepared for anonymous review. Panel proposals must include a general description of the topic or theme, the names and affiliations of all proposed participants, and a long abstract (approximately 1000 words) for each of the presentations. The abstract should articulate the thesis and central argument(s) of the talk.

$1000 will be available for Irene H. Chayes Travel grants, from the American Society for Aesthetics, for papers presenters with no other access to travel funds. To apply, notify the organizers that you wish to be considered, and estimate your travel costs. Do not include this in your paper.

Please send submission in PDF, Word, or RTF format to Laura Di Summa, Michel-Antoine Xhignesse, and Javier Gomez-Lavin at

Please feel free to direct questions to the Program Co-Chairs: Michel-Antoine Xhignesse (Capilano), or Laura Di Summa (William Paterson), or Javier Gomez-Lavin (University of Pennsylvania)
