The American Society for Aesthetics is pleased to announce that the ASA Board of Trustees has approved the award of $3,000 in support of the colloquium "Art, Desire, a&God: Phenomenological Perspectives." The colloquium, to be held at the University of Notre Dame October 2-3, 2020, has been organized by Kevin Grove, C.S.C., Taylor Nutter, and Christopher Rios. Substantial cost-sharing will be provided by several Notre Dame institutes and the local Snite Museum of Art on the Notre Dame campus.

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 colloquium, 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 and  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. 

As soon as the Call for Papers is announced, it will be posted on the ASA web site and other venues.
