Topic areas


Papers in any area of aesthetics, in both “analytic” and “continental” traditions, are invited from students enrolled in any graduate program in philosophy. Submissions must make a useful contribution to existing literature in a subfield, but should be understandable to aestheticians outside of that subfield. Five submissions will be selected for presentation.
For students whose papers have been accepted, $300 will be awarded towards transportation costs. A further $200 prize will be awarded to a student with an outstanding paper.
Graduate students are encouraged to submit papers to the ASA-Eastern, but please note that authors may not submit the same paper to both the ASA-Eastern and the Graduate Conference in Aesthetics. The same author(s) may submit different papers to both conferences.
Papers must be less than 3,000 words (not including footnotes), accompanied by a 100-word abstract, and prepared for blind review. Please send submissions or questions to John Dyck ([email protected]).
