THE PLACE OF BEAUTY IN THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD
Call for Papers
Beauty has been the key concept in aesthetics since Antiquity. The debate as to whether beauty is in the eyes of the beholder or in objects themselves is still going on. In philosophical aesthetics, there has been times during which problems of beauty have played only a minor role, but more recently the discussion has become lively again. In this conference of the Nordic Society of Aesthetics, we encourage scholars to take both traditional and radical perspectives into the problem of beauty. Issues to be covered are, for example, the following: Has beauty become obsolete? Is there a place for beauty in the arts? Does Beauty change? Beauty as an aesthetic value and in relation to other values, Beauty and politics, Digitalization and beauty, Gendered beauty, Beauty in fashion and appearances, Environmental problems and beauty.
Besides individual papers, we warmly welcome Panel proposals.

The time allocated for papers is 30 minutes (20 min + 10 minutes discussion), for panels consisting of 3-4 panelists 60 minutes.
