NECCT Announcement

Announcing the Northeast Conference on Chinese Thought, to be held at Wesleyan University on Friday and Saturday, November 8-9, 2013.

The goals of the Northeast Conference on Chinese Thought (NECCT) are twofold:

  1. To provide a regional forum for everyone from graduate students to established scholars to present work, learn from one another, and establish or strengthen mutual relationships; and
  2. To bring together scholars and students who approach Chinese thought from diverse disciplinary perspectives so as to foster understanding of our various objectives, perspectives, and constraints—the point not being to privilege one approach or hope for a grand synthesis, but simply to encourage each of us to be less insular and to find ways to learn from the approaches of others.

We will issue a call for abstracts later in the Spring, the submission deadline for which will be June 1. Papers will not be circulated in advance, there will be no pre-determined commentators, and we do not anticipate a conference volume. In short, this is intended to be an informal (though high-quality) discussion at which new ideas and work-in-progress are very welcome.
