The theme of the conference is “Values in the Environment – Relations and Conflicts”
The International Institute of Applied Aesthetics (IIAA) will arrange the X Summer Conference on Environmental Aesthetics in Lahti, Finland, 1.8.-3.8.2013.
Environments are arenas for different sorts of values. Environments are valued for their beauty and aesthetic experiences they afford, but there are also moral and ecological values that need to be taken into consideration, for example, in decision-making concerning particular areas both in human and in natural environments.
We invite researchers from different fields of the humanities, social and environmental sciences to discuss these questions. People interested in exploring them are asked to send an abstract of about 400 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 15th of February 2013. The time allotted to each paper is 40 minutes (30 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion).
