Call for Registration: Postgraduate Workshop in Aesthetics (Scottish Aesthetics Forum)

5-6 July 2021

10:30-17:30 BST

The Scottish Aesthetics Forum is hosting a Zoom workshop for postgraduates working in aesthetics from the 5th to the 6th of July.  The workshop is pre-read, so registration is necessary for attending.  This is an opportunity for postgrads to present their work and to receive friendly feedback from their peers, from the early-career researchers who will be commenting, and from those attending.  There will also be time allotted for informally getting to know each other better.  To register, please send an email to scottishaestheticsforum@gmail.com.  Once you let us know that you are attending, we will send an email with the workshop papers and the Zoom link.

Please note, the times are listed in British Summer Time (BST; UTC+01:00).
