Call for Abstracts: Aesthetics in the Time of Pandemic

Towson University, May 28-29, 2021

The global impact from Covid-19 raises questions about the place of aesthetics in our world today.  For some, aesthetics might seem dispensable at this time.  For others, aesthetics can be a force that encourages, enlightens, and inspires hope. In the light of the current situation, should aesthetic venues be subject to lockdown until the pandemic is over, or should aesthetics become a voice of resistance and hope?  What are the initiatives involving aesthetics that might play an important role? What are some of the philosophical implications of aesthetics in the time of pandemic? How should artists respond to the pandemic?

We invite abstracts for a virtual conference that will take place May 28-29, 2021. The conference will be virtual.

If you are interested in participating, please submit a 100-word abstract by March 31, 2021, to: John Murungi   jmurungi@towson.edu
