Aesthetics, Fashion and Psychology Conference 2016
London College of Fashion, 20 John Princes Street, London, W1G 0BJ
This interdisciplinary conference from Centre for Aesthetics at the University of Leeds and the London College of Fashion
focuses on the aesthetic and psychological issues raised by fashion. The conference is sponsored by the British Society of Aesthetics, the British Psychological Society and Home Counties Branch.
In recent years, philosophical aesthetics has been invigorated by an engagement with the cognitive sciences. It has also benefitted from close attention to the workings of particular forms and media. This conference seeks to follow in that path by bringing together philosophical aestheticians and fashion experts with psychologists, in order to explore a range of issues in the area.
