We are announcing a call for papers for the conference “Deception and Authenticity in Art: Morality, Language and Aesthetics” to be held 9-10 April in Uppsala, Sweden. The deadline for the submissions is 15 January 2018.
In this conference, we will bring together leading philosophers of art with leading scholars on deception within ethics and the philosophy of language with a view to the mutual enrichment of each discipline. Some examples of questions we will be exploring: Can a work of fiction lie to rather than mislead its audience? Are there any morally significant differences between making art objects with deceptive intentions and lying? Is deceiving morally preferable to lying? Why do we tend to revise our aesthetic judgements about art objects when we discover that they are forgeries? Is this practice legitimate? How should we account for authenticity in ontological terms?
We encourage submissions on topics related to the conference theme. Submissions addressing issues at the intersection of philosophy of art, ethics and philosophy of language are especially encouraged. Selection will be based on quality, relevance to the conference theme, and program considerations. The aim is to present a program that is as balanced as the quality of the submissions will allow.
