Dear ISCWP members,
The ISCWP plans to sponsor one or two panels at the 2016 APA Pacific Meeting, which will take place in San Francisco, March 30-April 2, 2016.
7/25/15: Upon review this blog has been edited significantly for grammatical correctness and clarity. I apologize for any glaring difficulties and hope that this revised version is easier to follow.
Synopsis: This paper-length blog post covers some of the developments in the gay-marriage debate among contemporary Confucian scholars. Throughout this piece I summarize and reconsider some of the proposed stances that some modern Confucian scholars take towards same-sex marriage. I consider what I call the Mengzi/Child Argument, the Metaphyiscal Argument, the Ren Argument, and the Institutional Argument.
Although Zhou texts have been extensively commented upon for nearly 2,500 years, recent events have fundamentally altered the way these texts are understood. These events include the still-influential Doubting Antiquity movement, discovery of previously unknown manuscripts during excavations, archaeology of material culture that expands our knowledge of Zhou life, and new phonetic restorations of ancient Chinese. In present day China, some early texts have been adapted into popular culture — the Confucian scholar Yu Dan has become a celebrity based on her charismatic presentation of the Lunyu.
