Call for Proposals: Analytic Aesthetics and Film Studies

Confirmed keynotes:
Dr Catharine Abell, Reader in Philosophy, The University of Manchester.
Dr Andrew Klevan, Associate Professor, Non-Tutorial Fellow and University Lecturer in Film Studies, University of Oxford.

The conference “Analytic Aesthetics and Film Studies” will explore how film scholars and practitioners can contribute to analytic aesthetics as much as how analytic aestheticians can contribute to our understanding of film. It welcomes analytic aestheticians working on film and film scholars and practitioners interested in contributing to the debates in analytic aesthetics.

Please send proposals to conference organizers Dr Mario Slugan (Ghent University / University of Warwick) and Dr Enrico Terrone (Università di Torino / Collège d’études mondiales): aesthetics.film.studies@gmail.com. The deadline for receipt is Monday, 2 July 2018. Speakers will be notified of decisions by the end of July. There will be no conference fees.

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 746619 and the British Society of Aesthetics.
