    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NAKS 2020 Biennial will be held on zoom from June 5-June 8. More info: https://bnaks2020.weebly.com/


    You must be a member of NAKS to register for the conference here:


    Each panel on the program has been given a number. Please provide the number for the panel(s) you wish to attend. 

    All the papers are available in the Members only section.

    You will receive a zoom link for each of the panels you have selected by June 4.

    If you already registered before May 1, you will need to reregister.

    --We hope that you will use the lunch breaks and the evenings after the panels to invite others to join you on your own zoom links to continue the conversation.  Hopefully, this zoom conference can be as rewarding as it would be if we were all together in Binghamton.

    We are pleased to announce that the 2018 NAKS Sellars prize has been awarded to Robert Clewis, for his paper, “Beauty and Utility in Kant’s Aesthetics: The Origins of Adherent Beauty.” The award-winning paper appeared in the Journal of the History of Philosophy's April 2018 issue. We congratulate Professor Clewis on an excellent, deeply researched paper that also draws attention to the connections between Kant’s aesthetics and contemporary thinking about beauty.
