Prof. Kwong-loi Shun, who taught at U.C. Berkeley from 1986-2003, has returned there after most recently serving as the Head of New Asia College at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He will be teaching one course per term, starting this spring. If anyone knows what his plans may be about accepting graduate students, please let us know.
Two events are coming up soon at the Center for East Asian and Comparative Philosophy at the City University of Hong Kong:
First, Bryan Van Norden is giving the CEACOP Annual Lecture on 13 March at 4:00pm, entitled “Truth and Argument in Ancient Chinese Philosophy”:
Then, on the weekend of 15-16 March, the center is hosting a conference on “Traditional Non-Confucian Perspectives on Social and Political Organization and Order”:
The APA sent out an announcement with the first CFP for their new journal, and it is worth noting that two of the eighteen Advisory Editors have specialties in Chinese philosophy. This marks a significant advance for our field, and I hope that everyone will consider it as an avenue for bringing Chinese philosophy to a more mainstream readership.
