Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art for Everyone


Aesthetics for Birds is a blog that aims to bring people working in aesthetics and philosophy of art together with each other, as well as with artists, the artworld, and others in philosophy and the academy. We provide a place to share interests, news, and professional concerns. We hope that this will enrich the perspectives and work of our readership.

The blog was founded in June 2013 by Christy Mag Uidhir (University of Houston).

Since 2016, it has been owned and run by Alex King (University at Buffalo, SUNY).

The Assistant Editor is C. Thi Nguyen (University of Utah).

In addition, there are five regular contributors: Roy T. Cook (University of Minnesota – Twin Cities), Anthony Cross (Texas State University), Nick Stang (University of Toronto), Matt Strohl (University of Montana), and Mary Beth Willard (Weber State University).

For brief bios of the above folks, see the posts here and here.
