Congress of Aesthetics
"Possible Worlds of Contemporary Aesthetics:
Aesthetics between History, Geography, and Media"
22-26 July 2019
Conference Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
due: September 1st 2018.
The University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture, The
Society for Aesthetics of Architecture and Visual Arts Serbia (DEAVUS) and the
International Association for Aesthetics (IAA) are pleased to announce a Call
for papers for 21st International Congress of Aesthetics (ICA).
Aesthetics is nowadays recognized as an important
philosophical, scientific, and theoretical discipline for interpreting the
complexity of phenomena of the contemporary world. Today aesthetics may be discussed
as possible worlds or possible aesthetic regimes rather than as a unique and
consistent philosophical, scientific or theoretical discipline. Confronting aesthetics
with the complexities of the sensory, sentimental, affective, conceptual, and
discursive phenomena of the contemporary world (society, culture, art,
technology and politics) reveals its relation to the history of aesthetics,
geographically diverse aesthetic systems and, of course, hybrid technologies of
media display, representation, and communication of contemporary forms of life.
The Belgrade Congress aims to map out contemporary
aesthetics practices with a vivid dialogue of aestheticians, philosophers, art
theorists, theorists of architecture, theorists of culture, media theorists,
artists, media entrepreneurs, architects, cultural activists and researchers in
the fields of humanities and social sciences. More precisely, the goal is to
map possible worlds of contemporary aesthetics in Europe, Asia, North and South
America, Africa, and Australia. The idea is to show, interpret and map the unity
and diverseness in aesthetic thought, expression, research, and teachings on
our shared planet. Our goal is to promote dialogue concerning aesthetics in
those parts of the world that have not been involved in the work of the International
Association for Aesthetics to this day. Global dialogue, understanding, and
cooperation are what we aim to achieve.
Submitted abstracts should be written in English and no
longer than 400 words. It is necessary to indicate the session of the Congress
in which the work will be presented, as well as personal academic affiliation
and e-mail contact. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed and selected by the
Scientific Committee. Please use the abstract template for submitting your
abstract proposal. For more information, visit 21st
