Please note that full paper submissions will not be accepted and submissions are limited to one per person.

International Conference

21st International Congress of Aesthetics
"Possible Worlds of Contemporary Aesthetics:
Aesthetics between History, Geography, and Media"
Belgrade, Serbia
22-26 July 2019
Conference Contact: ica2019@arh.bg.ac.rs

Abstract submission 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 ICA Belgrade.
