CFP: 4th European Network of Japanese Philosophy (ENOJP) Conference

Übergänge – Transitions – 移り渉り: Crossing the Boundaries in Japanese Philosophy

Papers dealing with the conference theme “Übergänge – Transitions – 移り渉り” are particularly welcome, but papers on other aspects related to Comparative & Japanese Philosophy will also be considered.

It is not necessary to adjust your presentation to the general theme in a very strict manner – we want to use the topic in a thought provoking rather than restrictive way! Please feel free to interpret the theme creatively. It is more important that you can give your presentation on a topic you are interested in than adjusting it to the general theme.

Conference Languages: English, German and Japanese

CFP: Adventures in Chinese Realism

Adventures in Chinese Realism: Call for Contributions

Two years ago, Eirik Harris (CityU Hong Kong/ Hong Kong Baptist U) and Henry Schneider (CityU Seattle) launched a project called “Adventures in Chinese Realism,” with a twofold aim. First, it is about re-discovering the Classics of Chinese Realism, for example Han Fei, Shen Dao, Guanzi, etc. Second, it is about applying Chinese Realism to actual issues in political philosophy (at large), for example, assessing Confucian revivalism, dealing with so-called corporate ethics, recasting checks and balances, etc.

Appeal for Eastern APA Submissions

I post this at Brad Cokelet’s request. Please note that the submission deadline for the 2019 Eastern APA is February 15, 2018.

Hello, fellow philosophers!  This is my second year on the Program Committee for the Eastern Division APA, and I want to strongly encourage philosophers working on Asian traditions to submit 3000-5000 word papers for the 2019 Eastern APA, which will be held in New York City.  I was surprised last year by the low number of Asian papers that I saw while serving on the Program Committee and I am sure more submissions would be warmly welcomed by everyone involved.  

I am only speaking for myself, and not the APA or the rest of the people involved in the process, but I believe publishing philosophers working on Asian traditions and figures will have a very solid chance of acceptance if they submit a paper, especially one that contributes to an on-going debate. Like many of you, I would be excited to see more papers of this sort on the main program so that philosophers who do not work on Asian philosophy can come to appreciate the complexity of the ideas and debates in the field.  Please consider working up a short paper to submit to the on-line system, which is now open!
