Estetika: The Central European Journal of Aesthetics - 1st issue
Call for Papers Date:
The new Estetika was established by the departments of aesthetics at Charles University, Prague, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Comenius University, Bratislava, University of Gdansk, and by the Institute of Art History, Prague. Our focus is primarily on topics that have been neglected in contemporary aesthetics: the possibilities of the transformation and redescription of traditional concepts (such as the aesthetic experience and the aesthetic object); the cognitive and social dimensions of the Aesthetic (das Ästhetische); the emotions and affects; the history of aesthetics; the history of aesthetics as an institutionalized discipline; and, last but not least, the definition of aesthetics in contrast to traditional and more recent disciplines (such as the theory of art, the psychology of art, cultural theory, and visual theory).
Estetika welcomes contributions in English or German on any of the aforementioned topics (though not limited strictly to them). Papers should be sent as Word files by e-mail attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. They should not exceed 30 standard type-written pages (9,000 words or 54,000 characters with spaces) – though in certain cases exceptions may be made. Please include a short biographical note about the author and an English abstract of 300 words (1,800 characters with spaces) or less.
