Cooperation with the Slovak Association for Aesthetics

I visited Bratislava November 24-28 and had a good lunch chat with the head of the Slovak Association for Aesthetics, Michaela Pastekova. The Finnish Society has lately been interested to work more internationally and the quite fresh Slovak Society is the first one we really now try to create something together with. Soon coming up: our first nomination for the article of the year (international).

Fall seminar

The annual fall seminar of the Finnish Society for Aesthetics will be held (sadly only in Finnish) December 2, from 12 noon to 4 PM at Tieteiden talo (Kirkkokatu 6). The topic of this years seminar will be Freedom and Radical Responsibility (Vapaus ja Radikaali vastuu) and it will be organized by Pajari Räsänen and Harri Mäcklin. More information (in Finnish) soon on the webpages of the society. Speakers will include Pajari Räsänen, Teemu Mäki, Pirkko Holmberg, Martta Heikkilä and Marko Gylén.

After the seminar the Society will award the Aesthetic Deed of the Year (in Finland), the Global Aesthetic Deed of the Year and, in cooperation with the Slovak Association for Aesthetics, the Article of the Year in the Field of Aesthetics. In the evening the society will organize a christmas party together with Aistimus, the association for students of aesthetics.
