Art and Life in Aestheticism: De-Humanizing and Re-Humanizing Art, the Artist,
and the Artistic Receptor (Edited Collection, under contract with Palgrave
Macmillan):

I am seeking 2-3 additional chapters (approximately 20 double-spaced pages
each) to fill some gaps in an edited collection that considers the extent to
which art for art's sake can be viewed as an attempt to re-humanize (rather
than merely de-humanize) art, the artist, and the artistic receptor.
