Universidade do Minho, Braga & Guimarães, Portugal, 25th – 27th of June, 2012

Submission deadline: 31th of January, 2012


The European Society for Aesthetics would like to invite you to submit a paper for presentation at the ESA Conference 2012. The conference will be co-organised by the ESA and the Philosophy Department and the School of Architecture at the Universidade do Minho and will take place in Braga and Guimarães from the 25th of June (morning) until the 27th of June (evening) 2012.

Keynote speakers:

Noël Carroll (Graduate Center, CUNY)

José Gil (New University of Lisbon)

Krystyna Wilkoszewska (Jagiellonian University, Krakow )

We are inviting papers from all traditions and on any topic in philosophical aesthetics, and both systematic and historical presentations are welcome. We encourage the presentation of papers in English, but submissions in other major European languages will be considered equally. For each talk, there will be time for a 30-minute presentation, with about another 30 minutes designated for dicussion. All accepted papers will be eligible for publication in the proceedings of the ESA.

We prefer the submission of full papers of about 3000-4000 words, combined with a short abstract. Alternatively, it is also possible to send in longer abstracts of a minimal length of 800 words, that present not only the main ideas and claims of the paper, but also sketch its chief considerations and arguments in favour of them. Please use the PDF-file format for submission and render your text completely anonymous, allowing for blind refereering.

To submit your paper, please use the EasyChair online submission system (first-time users will be asked to register with EasyChair). We also encourage all submitters to sign up as members of the ESA (which is free). The deadline for submissions of papers is the 31th of January 2012, and we aim to inform you about the result of our selection process by the end of February 2012.

Further information on the conference will soon be available on this website. Please send all your questions to the conference organisers: esa2012[at]eurosa.org.
