David Collins is the 2020–21 recipient of the American Society for Aesthetics’ Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship. This fellowship is awarded to a PhD student in the last year of their degree who is writing a dissertation on philosophical aesthetics and/or the philosophy of art, and is given to one student annually. David’s dissertation synthesizes five philosophers’ theories of art to develop a common account that best explains the process of artistic creation, and why art is valuable. Before entering PhD studies at McGill, he completed an MA in philosophy, also on the topic of art, under the supervision of Club member Betty Trott
