AESTHETICS FOR BIRDS

Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art for Everyone

Awesome Things to Come #3: Interviews with Philosopher-Artists

1 Comment

For Awesome Things to Come #1 & #2 go here& here.


I’ll also be conducting interviews with philosophers who also actively work in one or more of the various Arts (or actively engage in the artistic practices thereof). The idea here is that in virtue of their being uniquely situated between the two worlds of art and philosophy, they are able to offer valuable insights into both, as well as to how work in one might figure for work in the other. To this end, I’ve thus far confirmed the following stellar line-up of Philosopher-Artists (official schedule coming soon):

Carrie Ichikawa Jenkins: The Canada Research Chair and Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia, Professorial Fellow of the Northern Institute of Philosophy, and member of the musical group The 21st Century Monads (more info here).
Keith Lehrer: Regent’s Professor (emeritus) of Philosophy at the University of Arizona, Research Professor of Philosophy at the University of Miami, and active painter & performance artist (more info here).
Troy Jollimore: Professor of Philosophy at California State University, Chico, and award-winning poet (more info here).
