Aesthetics in the Long Eighteenth Century

The annual conference of the Society for German Idealism and Romanticism, Södertörn University (Stockholm), 11-12 June 2020

The SGIR welcomes papers on all aspects of aesthetics including conceptions of art, the significance of the fine arts, the nature of beauty, and forms of the sublime. Within the long eighteenth century, we are interested in everything from the influence of early and mid-century theorists (e.g. Baumgarten, Moritz, and Winckelmann) on the Idealists and Romantics, to more central examinations of Kant's third Critique, Schelling and Hegel's philosophy of art, and Hölderlin and Goethe's poetics. We also encourage papers that explore the interconnection between aesthetic concepts and ethics, aesthetics and science, as well as between art and philosophies of society.

The time for submitted papers will be 30 minutes with 15 minutes for Q&A. As such, submissions should be 4-5,000 words. SGIR membership is required prior to paper submission. Membership is free (see homepage of the SGIR website,
