Call for papers: Crossings: A Counter-Disciplinary Journal
Issue # 9: The "Work" of Art
DEADLINE: December 1, 2005

The ninth issue of Crossings aims at addressing the ambiguous
relationship between the aesthetic and the ethical. The binary between
ethicism (the notion of art as a guide to morality) and aestheticism
(the notion that art and morality are autonomous spheres) has
historically framed the thinking about art and ethics, but what is at
stake in limiting our thinking to this framework? We invite people to
think beyond and across this gulf and to imagine other possibilities
of art's power.
