The ASA Eastern Division announces the Call for Papers for the meeting to be held Friday-Saturday, April 16-17, 2021 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Center City on Broad Street.


Submission deadline: January 10, 2021

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 the ASA online:

Papers 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 Michel-Antoine Xhignesse and Javier Gomez-Lavin at

Although we are hopeful that we will be able to hold this meeting in person, in this time of great uncertainty it is possible that we will need to shift to a virtual meeting. We expect to make this decision no later than January 15, 2021 and will announce it in all of the ASA’s communication venues.

Please feel free to direct questions to the Program Co-Chairs: Javier Gomez-Lavin (University of Pennsylvania) and Michel-Antoine Xhignesse (Capilano)
