It has just come to my attention that Volume 19, Number 4 of Chinese Review International has been published. This is dated 2012, but they have been running behind. I’m not sure how recently this issue was published, but anyway it’s new to me, and perhaps to some readers. Several recent books in Chinese philosophy are reviewed, including works by Jiang Qing, Michael Ing, Paul Fraser, and more. For those without institutional access, Yuri Pines’s review of Jiang Qing is also available on his Academia.edu site.
On behalf of the organizers, I’d like to announce two forthcoming events at the Department of Asian and African Studies, Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana (Slovenia).
The first one is a summer school on Wei, Jin, Nanbei Period and the Importance of Transition to be held 2-9 September 2015 in Korte (Slovenia). Applications are invited from graduate students as well doctoral degree holders. There is no tuition fee and the costs of full board are covered by Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation. Participants should cover their own travel expenses to Ljubljana, transportation between Ljubljana and the summer school venue will be provided by the organizers. A letter of motivation as well as further enquires should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 July 2015. For more information, see here.
The second one is a conference in the Special Topics in Chinese Studies (STCS) series to be held 11-13 December 2015 in Ljubljana (Slovenia). This year’s topic is Comparative Perspectives: Islam, Confucianism and Buddhism. Proposals are invited for panels, roundtable discussions, and individual papers addressing the conference theme as outlined in the Call for Papers.
