The aim of this Summer School is to bring together and integrate the multiple and complementary ways of investigating, analyzing and discussing the refutation of the Cartesian mind-body dichotomy and its consequences for aesthetics beyond art theory.
It provides a unique opportunity for Master students, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and senior academic researchers to take part in a lively exhange of ideas within an international and interdisciplinary community of experts in aesthetics and the embodied mind thesis.
The School will present and discuss cutting-edge research that highlights the link of the following research fields to the embodied mind thesis in aesthetics:
empirical study of literary aesthetics
psychology of aesthetics
robotics and aesthetics
HCI and aesthetics
Embodied emotions and aesthetics
Prospective participants are invited to send their abstract (max. 300 words), a short CV indicating their publications (where possible) and the main achievements, their affiliation and a motivation letter to the following address: aestheticsandtheembodiedmind1[at]gmail.com
Deadline for abstract submission: 15th December 2012
