Date(s): 22. December – 01. June


ESPES. The Slovak Journal of Aesthetics. Thematic Symposium ‘Dwelling Aesthetics: New paradigms and perspectives’

What can aesthetics tell us about the way we dwell in the world? What role do atmospheres play in our relationship with the inhabited environment? And how can our gender identity influence the phenomenological experience we have of spaces? To promote discussion on this timely issue, ESPES. The Slovak Journal of Aesthetics intends to dedicate a special Thematic Symposium to the topic of the Aesthetics of Dwelling, guest-edited by Aurosa Alison (Politecnico di Milano, Italy).
We encourage short papers exploring the connection between dwelling and atmosphere, sensory body, and gender. Should a philosophical focus on the atmospheric, bodily, and gendered experience of dwelling take priority when designing objects, cities, interiors, urban places? Papers should conform to the usual ESPES stylistic requirements for ‘Short Essays and Discussion Pieces’ and be submitted for consideration by June 1, 2022. All submissions will undergo a double-blind peer-review process.
