CFP: EACP online conference on Chinese Philosophy

The European Association for Chinese Philosophy (EACP) is hosting its first online conference on December 3rd 2021, in the theme of “Chinese Philosophy: Paths Between Convergence and Divergence” (more info here; deadline for submission October 31st).

We are particularly excited for the opportunity afforded by the online medium to get to know scholars of Chinese philosophy who cannot normally travel to Europe for our conferences. We strongly encourage the participation of junior scholars, women, scholars of color, and other groups who aren’t well represented in the fields of Chinese philosophy and Sinology.

I hope we’ll get to see many new faces and that many will get advantage of this opportunity to get to know our association.

You can write Mercedes Valmisa (mvalmisa@gettysburg.edu) and Selusi Ambrogio (selusi.ambrogio@unimc.it) with any questions or suggestions!
