The executive committee of the European Society for Aesthetics is happy to announce that the winning essay of the 2021 Fabian Dorsch ESA Essay Prize is “Interpretive Authenticity: Performances, Versions and Ontology” by Nemesio García-Carril Puy (University of Murcia). The committee appreciated careful, well-informed, and convincing argumentation backed up by a great choice of examples. Nemesio will present the paper on Wednesday, June 23rd, 2021 at the ESA conference. A longer version of the winning essay will be published in Estetika: The European Journal of Aesthetics.
The ESA Essay Prize for PhD students and early career researchers was launched in 2017 in memory Fabian Dorsch, a co-founder and the first secretary of the European Society for Aesthetics.
