> Ontological contextualism in contemporary analytic philosophy of art is the position that an artwork’s identity and contents are determined in part by its relation to the relevant contextual factors holding at the time when it was created. Among these are a work’s title and the author’s categorial intention. It is generally agreed that before we interpret a work, we should correctly identify it by, for example, viewing it under the right title or locating it in the artistic category to which the author intended it to belong. I argue that some contextual factors—titles and categories in particular—cannot be accepted as they are without being interpreted. Only when we have an account of interpreting titles and categories can we proceed to interpret works.
> Jeonggyu Lee <https://philpeople.org/profiles/jeonggyu-lee> (Sungkyunkwan University): Retroactive Continuity and Fictional Facts. 
> This paper deals with the phenomenon of retroactive continuity, or retcon for short, which is a literaldevice where the truth-value of a proposition in an earlier fictional work is changed by a later work. The primary aim of this paper is to provide the most compelling explanation for retroactive continuity. I first defend the metaphysical view about fiction, according to which when retconning occurs, a fictional work changes its property of containing a proposition while preserving its identity. I then argue that this view is theoretically preferable to all other competing approaches.
