About us ...


Mission Statement

aesthethika© as a concept was first created by a team of scholars, graduate students and researchers coming from diverse fields of studies both from Argentina and from the US. We have been for many years doing interdisciplinary and international research in areas such as communication, political theory, psychoanalysis, film theory, ethics, performance, human rights and cultural studies.

In aesthethika© we want to put together different traditions of thought that have in common a critical perspective on culture and subjectivity. We understand that the individual subject and the cultural realm can never be disassociated from the social and the political arenas. Hence, our concern is to explore those conjunctures, edges and areas where these problematics stand out.

aesthethika© is an independent, critical and investigative journal, more interested in inquiring than in reifying common judgments. Hence, it becomes a particular place from where to ask questions about disciplines, knowledges and practices that have effects on the psychical and the cultural bodies.

aesthethika© offers an educational and professional scenario to encourage stimulating, interdisciplinary research and theory. We focus on qualitative approaches to culture analysis, subjectivity analyses, and aesthetics. Its emphasis on qualitative, interpretive, and critical/cultural work and its collaborative, international review endeavor characterizes Aesthethika’s perspective as unique among contemporary journals.

Since 2010 aesthethika© is a Journal of the Departament of Ethics, Politics and Technology, Research Institute, School of Psychology, University of Buenos Aires
