Aesthetics & Politics
Work-in-Progress Workshop | 20 November, 2017
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers at different stages of their careers who share an interest in the relationship between politics and aesthetics, in other words the representational dimensions of political theories and political practices, and the political dimensions of aesthetic theories and aesthetic practices. The work presented at the workshop will consider how both historical and contemporary philosophical ideas can shed light on the complex nexus of aesthetics and politics.
