SublimAE Seminar

SublimAE (the Sublime and Aesthetic Experiences) seminar, in connection with SublimAE ANR project, will focus on the interdisciplinary study of Aesthetic Experiences with an eye to the sublime by bringing together philosophy, psychology, and social sciences. We will explore, on the one hand, how the experience of the sublime connects to other similar or contrast experiences (the beautiful, terrible beauty, awe, wonder, the uncanny, …), and, on the other hand, the impact these experiences, and more specifically aesthetic ones, have on our representation of the self.

The seminar will feature presentations by members of the project, as well as by invited speakers. It will be an annual seminar with (ideally) fortnightly meetings (check the agenda!).

Venue: Institut Jean Nicod, Salle de réunion, ground floor, Pavillon Jardin 29 rue d’Ulm, 75005 Paris (you can enter also from 24 rue Lhomond)

Time: Generally, 3pm-5pm
