Aesthetics for Birds (AFB) 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 art world, and others in philosophy and the academy. And we try to do so in a way that is accessible to the general public. We hope that this will enrich the thoughts and perspectives of our readership.
Since 2016, AFB has been owned and managed by Alex King.
Alex is associate professor of philosophy at Simon Fraser University, where she works on issues at the intersection of ethics and aesthetics. She is the current Editor-in-Chief of AFB, and also frequently organizes and edits roundtable discussions, conducts AFB interviews, and contributes posts.
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).
