    The spring term 2022 meetings are reserved for discussing the students’ essays. Each participant will write a 10–15 page essay (6000–8000 words) that will be presented in the seminar. Preferably, the theme should combine some core areas of aesthetics or philosophy of art and the student’s doctoral project. It is advisable to select and follow the guidelines of a journal, to which the produced essay could be offered for publication. 

    Each week one paper will be discussed. Each student will also be an opponent of one paper. 

    The papers should be sent 1 week in advance (the previous Friday latest) to the General discussion board.
