The British Society of Aesthetics is offering a grant of up to £5,000 to support its sixth postgraduate conference in aesthetics.
The conference should be a general aesthetics conference or on some theme in aesthetics. Though it must be for postgraduates, it can be organised by either postgraduates or academics. Besides covering the conference costs, funds may be used to support postgraduate bursaries, including travel, accommodation and food costs, both for speakers and delegates, as well as the costs of any invited speakers. The organisers of the conference are responsible for all practical matters concerning its running; and the conference must be held by the end of May 2020. The conference must be held in the UK, though the organisers need not be based here. The BSA expects to be the sole funder of this conference, which should include ‘The Sixth British Society of Aesthetics Postgraduate Conference’ in its title, and all conference materials should publicise the role of the BSA.
Proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday 1 April 2019. They should be no more than 2,200 words long, and include the names of the organisers and conference committee, a proposed date range and venue, a draft budget, an explanation of the procedures for choosing papers and awarding bursaries, a draft Call for Papers and a list of any proposed invited speakers. The BSA has adopted the Good Practice Policy of the British Philosophical Association and the Society for Women in Philosophy, and the application should explain how the conference would comply with these guidelines. Guidance about how to produce a detailed budget and a link to a summary of the BPA/SWIP Policy is available at https://british-aesthetics.org/funding/postgraduate-conference/
Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their applications by the middle of May 2019. Any questions about this Call for Proposals should be addressed to the BSA Manager at the email address above.
