1 and 2 November
at the University of Malta Valletta Campus
The Department of Philosophy of the University of Malta is hosting the 5th edition of the international conference Engaging the Contemporary on 1-2 November 2018 at the University of Malta Valletta Campus.
Engaging the Contemporary 2018 (EtC18) addresses current debates on aesthetics and the philosophy of art by re-viewing the history of aesthetics; philosophical concepts in aesthetics; traditional and emerging media or art forms and their relationship to aesthetics; the intersections of aesthetics with various academic and non-academic disciplines as well as broader discourses and practices. The aesthetic can range from theories of sensual perception (aisthesis) to the philosophy and practice of aesthetic production and reception as well as concepts of art and beauty and their critical questioning and creative transformation.
