A Beautiful Summer (Online)
For these seminars, we have invited a group of wonderful people to contribute short essays, which will set a starting point for reflection and friendly debate. We're thrilled to present our full schedule below.
The plan is simple. We will meet on Zoom weekly, from mid-June until early August. Each of these meetings will be on Wednesday, and preceded by the publication of a short blog post on Monday, two days earlier. The posts will appear on this website, and will be written by one of the invited experts. All participants joining for the discussion will be asked to read these posts in advance of the weekly meetings, and we encourage them to come prepared with some questions as well as their own ideas. The meetings will be 1h 15m long.
Topics we may cover in our dicussions include, but are not limited to: disagreement, expertise, rationality, perception, realism, conceptual art, imagination, and community.
There will only be limited places for these seminars. If you want to hear more about how to join for these seminars, or have any other questions, please contact Maarten Steenhagen.
For those not joining on Zoom, there will be an opportunity for further discussion on Twitter. Please follow @AesPerCog
