The annual World Picture Conference gathers scholars from a range of different disciplines to address the relation between critical theory, philosophy, and aesthetics. For this year’s meeting we welcome papers on questions of action. Such considerations might include (but are in no sense limited to):
• voluntarism • collectivity (in aesthetics, media, politics) • intentionality • acting (in film, media, theatre/performance) • acting out • willfulness • riotous behaviour • interaction/interactivity • inaction/inactivity • performative utterances/actions • performativity • neo-Arendtian accounts of action • media as action • action in perception • decision • stimulation
Please send a 250 word abstract, five-entry bibliography, and brief bio firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 June.
