The Board of Trustees of the American Society for Aesthetics is pleased to announce that Sonia Sedivy, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Department of Philosophy, University of Toronto at Scarborough, has accepted its invitation to serve as program chair for the 79th Annual Meeting in Montreal, November 17-20, 2021.

Professor Sedivy's book Beauty and the End of Art, Wittgenstein, Plurality and Perception, argues that Wittgenstein’s later work and contemporary theory of perception offer just what we need for new approaches to art and beauty that explain the historical plurality of both. In 2017, she organized an ASA-funded workshop Art, History and Perception  to think about how works of art and visual culture stand at the intersection of history and perception. Some of the papers from the workshop served as a basis for a special issue of the British Journal of Aesthetics 58:4 (2018) of the same title: Art, History and Perception.
