Chinese Aesthetics


Call for Publications

Theme: Chinese Aesthetics
Subtitle: Traditional and Transcultural Perspectives
Publication: Journal of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics (JCLA)
Date: Special Issue
Deadline: 31.1.2020



China has a long and rich tradition of artistic practices and
aesthetic theory, but this tradition has, in contemporary times, been
underutilized in international philosophical aesthetics and
transcultural theory. This issue of JCLA aims to address this problem
by inviting papers that explore Chinese aesthetics, the role it has
played in international and transcultural aesthetics, and the most
promising ways it could contribute to these fields:

1. Chinese Aesthetic Theory (Traditional and Contemporary).

2. The “traveling” of Chinese art and aesthetics in the history, such
  as Chinoiserie.

3. Chinese aesthetics as inspirations for other aesthetic cultures or
  theoretical invention.

4. Comparative studies of aesthetics or artistic genres (poetry,
  painting, music, drama, calligraphy, etc) between Chinese and other
  cultural traditions.


Deadline: 31 January 2020
Length: 3,000-5,000 words (MLA 8th edition)
