Society for the Philosophic Study of the Contemporary Visual Arts

February 26 – March 1, 2014, Chicago

The Society for the Philosophic Study of the Contemporary Visual Arts (SPSCVA) invites papers to be presented at its divisional meeting held in conjunction with the Central Division Meetings of the American Philosophical Association (February 26-March 1, 2014, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL). Papers may address any topic that involves the connection between philosophy and the visual arts: film, photography, video games, or other visual aesthetic media.

Presentations should be 20-25 minutes (10-12 pages double spaced).

Participants must be currently paid members of the SPSCVA. (You do not need to be a member of the SPSCVA to submit a paper for consideration.) Please submit full papers only (not abstracts). The Society also welcomes proposals for panels, author-meets-critics, or other special sessions, as well as volunteers to serve as panel chairs and commentators.



Please submit papers or panel proposals as e-mail attachments, with ‘SPSCVA’ initiating the subject line in your email. Central Division papers & proposals should be sent to: Dan Flory (Montana State University) at dflory@montana.edu
