Collaborative Activities

Centre members work closely with our other research centres (Centre for Metaphysics and Mind and Centre for Ethics and Metaethics) on areas of common interest, such as the ontology of musical works, the depiction of time and change, the metaphysics of evaluative properties, the structure of normative theory and philosophical psychology.

Members of the Centre also pursue interdisciplinary collaborations and projects within the university through the Popular Cultures Research Network

The Centre also participates in the White Rose Aesthetics Forum, a collaboration between those working in philosophical aesthetics at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York.

From September 2009 - March 2013 Matthew Kieran and Aaron Meskin were co-investigators, along with Gregory Currie (University of Nottingham), on the large scale Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project on ‘Method in Philosophical Aesthetics: the Challenge from the Sciences’.

Members of the Centre are also involved in collaborative work nationally and internationally focusing upon experimental aesthetics and creativity.
