The American Society for Aesthetics invites applications to serve as a speaker on aesthetics at one or more of three institutes in the summer of 2020: (1) the Summer Program for Women in Philosophy at UC San Diego; (2) the 23rd Annual Rutgers Summer Institute for Diversity in Philosophy (3) the Summer Immersion Program at Brown University.

For each of the three institutes, the ASA-sponsored speaker will attend the Institute for two days, give a 2-1/2 hour presentation (including a question and answer period), and take meals with the students. The speaker will receive an honorarium ($400 at UCSD and Rutgers, $250 at Brown), plus travel, lodging, and meals at the institute site.

For more information on each institute, please consult their web sites:

Applicants to be the ASA speaker must be current members of the ASA. Applicants should send a brief current CV (or URL of a current CV) and a brief statement (no more than 750 words) of the proposed presentation.  In each case, presenters will be introducing aesthetics to undergraduate philosophy majors with little or no experience with aesthetics. Presenters also typically informally advise students about North American doctoral programs and opportunities in philosophy.

Applicants should clearly indicate which program(s) for which they would like to be considered. Applicants can ask to be considered for one, two, or three of the institutes, but only one application should be submitted. The Brown program extends from July 6-17, 2020, with the ASA participation on July 16-17. The Rutgers program will be held July 19-25, with ASA participation on one day to be arranged with the institute director. The San Diego program extends from July 13-24, with ASA participation on one day to be arranged with the institute director.

Sponsored ASA speakers at previous summer institutes are eligible, although priority will be given to well-qualified applicants who have not previously presented on ASA’s behalf. Applications should be sent by e-mail no later than February 1, 2020, to Julie Van Camp, Secretary-Treasurer at A decision by ASA on finalists is expected no later than March 1 by an ad hoc committee appointed by the ASA President. The final speaker selection will be made by each respective institute director.
