Call for Papers 

Conference on Perception and the Arts:
British Society of Aesthetics Connections Conference,
Institute of Philosophy, London
September 16-17, 2015

The conceptual apparatus of philosophy of perception has been used in as diverse corners of aesthetics and philosophy of art as debates about depiction, aesthetic experiences, character engagement, our engagement with fictions, our engagement with narratives, aesthetic properties, metaphors, and so on. The aim of the conference is to provide a general framework for these ways in which philosophy of perception and aesthetics can be fruitfully combined, but, it is important to emphasize, a framework where not only aesthetics is enriched by philosophy of perception but philosophy of perception can also learn from aesthetics, making the interaction between the two sub-disciplines genuinely bidirectional. The conference is supported by a British Society of Aesthetics Connections Conference Grant. 
Confirmed speakers: 
Ophelia Deroy (University of London)
Anya Farennikova (University of Bristol)
Heather Logue (University of Leeds)
Mohan Matthen (University of Toronto)

Length: 3000 words. Single spaced!
Deadline: March 31, 2015. Papers should be sent to nanay@berkeley.edu
