The Twelfth ESA Conference to Be Held Online/

Since the pandemic situation still seems rather gloomy, we are operating under the assumption that travelling might not be an option for many people across Europe, and world-wide, which is why we have decided to organize an online conference in 2021. The conference will closely follow the format of a real event and it will take place on June 21 – 23, 2021.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Professor David Davies (McGill)
  • Professor Bence Nanay (Antwerp)
  • Professor Erika Fischer-Lichte (Freie Universität Berlin)

A Call for Abstracts for the 2021 ESA Conference/

We invite papers from all traditions and on any topic in philosophical aesthetics, and both systematic and historical presentations are acceptable. Submissions must be long abstracts (800-1200 words in length) presenting not only the main ideas and claims of the paper, but also the arguments in favour of them. We encourage the presentation of submissions in English, but submissions in other major European languages will be considered equally. Full paper submissions will not be accepted, and submissions are limited to one per person.

Please note that those who submitted their abstracts last year can resubmit them, provided they did not submit their papers to our 2020 Proceedings. All abstract will be evaluated anew.

Please use the PDF-file format for submission and render your text completely anonymous (metadata included) to allow for blind refereeing. To submit your long abstract, please use the EasyChair online submission system (first-time users will be asked to register with EasyChair):

We also encourage all submitters to sign up as members of the ESA (which is free) at

The deadline for submissions of long abstracts is January 15, 2021, and we aim to inform you about the result of our selection process by the end of February, depending on the number of submissions.

For each talk, there will be time for a 20-25 minute presentation, with about another 20 minutes designated for discussion. Conference fee is 10 € for all the participants, including PhD students, independent scholars and established academics.

All papers presented at the conference are eligible for publication in the Proceedings of the ESA (details available at )

All questions about submissions should be emailed to
