Aesthetic Studies in Education and Literature

updated: 
Wednesday, October 5, 2016 - 10:06am
Feryal Cubukcu/Dokuz Eylul University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2016

In the ancient Greek education  there was a focus on art education such as musical education and drama education. This primary art education is the rudiment of aesthetic education. It aims at leading students to be self-regulated and be able to get rid of all faults. Plato believes that students would get the habit to love the beautiful thing and integrate it with their mind unknowingly and prevent  the influence from the evil, the debauchery, the contemptibility, and the obscenity. Plato thinks that the best education is music education, for music is to look for the beauty and the good in heart and the person with good music education is smart to find out which the ugly is and which the beautiful is.

NeMLA 2017 The Godly and the Grotesque: The Monstrous Body in Antiquity and Beyond

In the modern era, the word “monster” has taken on a negative implication, frequently referring to an entity that is fearsome or even harmful. The term has its origins in the Latin monstrum, which meant demonstration or divine sign, and the Greek word teras, which may be translated as strange, wonderful, or marvelous and can signify any entity composed of multiple parts. The “monstrous” figures prominently in descriptions of hybrid creatures originating in Greco-Roman mythology, but these images were often deployed in order to render philosophical, religious, and political ideas.
