CNKI Journal Translation Project

I have recently received information about a new project by CNKI, the outfit behind the Chinese Academic Journal Database, which some of us are lucky enough o have access to through our institutions. The new project is to make at least some of the content available in English translation, and their press release explicitly includes mention of philosophy. There will be a series of webinars introducing the new product, information about which is available here.

APA GradGuide

The APA has released the latest version of its guide to graduate programs in philosophy. It is searchable by field, and currently only three programs (all MA only) are listed under Asian Philosophy, and none under Comparative Philosophy. I know that the situation is dire, but it isn’t quite *that* dire! This is based on self-reported data, so if your school’s program includes Asian or Comparative Philosophy, you might use the feedback form on the site to ask that this information be included.

There will not be a December 2015 meeting of the Columbia University Seminar on Neo-Confucian Studies this year. Below, however, is a tentative schedule for our Spring 2016 semester.  Note that to avoid scheduling conflicts with the AAS, our April session is not on the first Friday of the month.

  • Friday, February 5, 2016.  Pierce Salguero, Penn State Abingdon.  “Chinese Buddhist Notions of the Body.”
  • Friday, March 4, 2016.  Peter Zarrow, University of Connecticut.
  • Friday, April 22.  Brook Ziporyn, University of Chicago.

Our sessions usually meet from 3:30 to 5:30pm in the Heyman Center for the Humanities at Columbia University.   Papers will be circulated in advance.

All are welcome to attend.   Please feel free to forward this message to interested colleagues.  Please also join us after the seminar for dinner at a location to be announced.
