CFP: ISCWP at 2016 APA Eastern

The ISCWP plans to sponsor one or two panels at the 2016 APA Eastern Division meeting.
Our Goal: We would like to encourage submissions of proposals of individual papers and panels. We encourage papers or panels that promote in-depth engagement between Chinese and Western philosophy. The submissions will be reviewed by all the three members of the board. When we select papers, we normally try to find papers that have common theme to form a panel. You may have a better chance to be accepted if you submit a panel proposal which already has a common theme.

For this year, we would especially like to encourage submissions to form at least one panel around the broad theme: Continental and Chinese Philosophy. Possible topics may include comparative work on individual figures (Heidegger, Levinas, Deleuze, Irigaray, Confucius, Mencius, Zhuangzi, etc.), topics from within these traditions (Hermeneutics and Chinese Philosophy, etc.), and work on 20th century Chinese philosophical figures such as Mou Zongsan, Tang Junyi, Xiong Shili, Liang Shuming, etc.
