CFP: Evental Aesthetics, Vol. 2 No. 2

Deadline: July 15, 2013

The Editors of Evental Aesthetics, an independent, peer-reviewed,
online journal dedicated to philosophical and aesthetic
intersections, are pleased to invite submissions for our
forthcoming issue.

We welcome both full-length articles (4,000-10,000 words,
excluding endnotes) and Collisions (1,000-2,000 words).
Collisions are brief (but well-written and thoughtful) responses
to aesthetic experiences that raise philosophical questions for
discussion, but that do not necessarily enact the discussion in
full. More information on Collisions is available at

This issue will have two parts, one dedicated to a specific theme,
and the other (.unthemed.) devoted to aesthetic, philosophical
questions of any kind. The Editors therefore seek submissions in
two categories.

1. Aesthetics and philosophy (.unthemed.): This section will be
devoted to philosophical matters pertaining to any aesthetic
practice or experience, including but not limited to art and
everyday aesthetics.

2. Animals and aesthetics: The themed section of this issue will
focus on aesthetic matters relating to animals. Suggested topics
include, but are not limited to:
. Animals in art
. The aesthetics of zoos
. Wildlife film
. Taxidermy
. Aesthetic matters in zoological science
. Species taxonomy and aesthetics
. Photography of ocean life and other species

Both categories may be freely interpreted, however all submissions
must address philosophical matters.

Please send your submissions electronically in MS Word format (doc
or docx), double-spaced in a legible font, in accordance with The
Chicago Manual of Style (endnotes). Be sure to accompany your
submission with an abstract (max. 250 words), a bibliography, and
at least 5 keywords that may be used as search terms. Articles
must be in English, but we welcome either American or British
spelling provided the submission remains consistent throughout.
Please note that all submissions must be formatted for blind

Before submitting, please review our submission requirements, review procedures, and copyright policy at
