Berggruen Workshop at Harvard: “Perspectives on Chinese Thought in the World”

This workshop celebrates the partnership between the Berggruen Institute and the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, thereby also taking advantage of the presence of the first group of Berggruen Fellows at Harvard. The topic of the workshop, also related to a major concern of the Berggruen Institute, is “Perspectives on Chinese Thought in the World.” Some of the presenters work on China in a rather straightforward way, others don’t, but China, and thus Chinese thought, concerns us all, and increasingly so. One way or another, the talks will address how it does. Advance reading of papers is not expected, though papers are available for some of the talks (upon request).

On February 9, 2017, the workshop convened for a successful session, featuring Viren Murthy, Tongdong Bai, and Sungmoon Kim, before the organizers were compelled to postpone the afternoon panels due to the onset of a blizzard. These panels have now been rescheduled as a featured event that will kick off the Center’s 30th Anniversary Celebration, May 4-6, 2017. More details are here.

Chinese Phil-Related Panels at Pacific APA

I have done my best to compile and organize chronologically all the Chinese Philosophy-related panels, lectures, and other events at the Pacific APA, coming up in Seattle next week. If you notice anything I have left out, please let me know. I did not include papers or panels that relate solely to other East Asian traditions — happily, there are several of these, but I decided to limit myself to Chinese philosophy for the purpose of this list.

April 15 Deadline for Bay Area Conference on Chinese Thought

Just a quick reminder that the deadline for the Bay Area Conference on Chinese Thought (BACCT) is April 15. The event will take place at UC Davis on October 14-15. More information below!

 

Thor Harris and I are pleased to announce the inaugural meeting of the Bay Area Conference on Chinese Thought (BACCT), which will meet annually at various Bay Area institutions of higher education beginning in 2017. BACCT is modeled on the highly successful regional cross-disciplinary conference series on Chinese thought in the Northeast and Midwest. Like those, the aim is is provide a forum for scholars to present their work, develop networks with other scholars in the area, and examine issues in Chinese thought from different disciplinary perspectives. Although the conferences will be held in the Bay Area (broadly construed), all scholars of Chinese thought are welcome to attend.

Individual presentations will likely be twenty minutes in length, grouped into panels that will aim to bring out inter-disciplinary connections. Continue reading “April 15 Deadline for Bay Area Conference on Chinese Thought”

Report/Summary on 3rd Rutgers Workshop

Eddy Keming Chen, an advanced graduate student in philosophy at Rutgers, served as rapporteur for the recent Rutgers Workshop on Chinese Philosophy, and compiled this very through report on the day’s presentations and discussion. Many thanks, Eddy! (For those who would prefer a nicely formatted PDF version, it is available here.)

Report on The 3rd Rutgers Workshop on Chinese Philosophy (RWCP): CONVERSATIONS WITH WESTERN PHILOSOPHERS (Friday, April 15, 2016)

Eddy Keming Chen , Rutgers Philosophy Department

The 3rd Rutgers Workshop on Chinese Philosophy (RWCP), organized by Tao Jiang (Rutgers), Ruth Chang (Rutgers), and Stephen Angle (Wesleyan), continued the success of the RWCP conferences of the past two years. This year, the workshop included four sessions. Each presenter had been asked to find a Western philosopher to conduct a dialogue on a common theme in Chinese philosophy and Western philosophy. That resulted in four highly suggestive and fruitful conversations: the importance of studying non-Western philosophy, theories of truth, yuan and the “bourgeois predicament,” and the foundations for moral relativism.

International Young Philosophers Roundtable at Oberlin

At its meeting this year at Oberlin College (July 13-17), the Society for Values in Higher Education will be hosting the International Young Philosophers Roundtable—an organization recently created by the School of Philosophy at Wuhan University (China). The roundtable will be composed of 4-6 Chinese scholars and 4-6 Western scholars writing on the following topics in the broader area of Public Discourse:

1. Public Discourse and Civil Society

2. Disagreement

3. Relativism

4. Pluralism

5. Culture and Public Discourse

6. Religion and Public Discourse

7. Public Discourse in Chinese Philosophy

8. Public Discourse Across Cultures

9. Public Discourse and Cultural Psychology 

Scholars chosen for this symposium will submit papers by JUNE 1, allowing other participants to read them well in advance of the meeting. At the meeting, papers will be discussed and revised in order to prepare them for possible publication in a special issue of Soundings: An Interdisciplinary Journal. All participants are responsible for travel to Oberlin and room and board (costs approximately $550-650 for room and three meals per day). The registration fee for the conference ($200+), however, will be waived.

The topics listed were chosen to fit with the theme of this year’s SVHE meeting (The Politics of Dissent: Satire, Sarcasm, and Spite in Civil Society). If you know of anyone who might be interested in this symposium, please forward this e-mail to them. Inquiries should be directed to Eric Bain-Selbo (bain-selbo@svhe.org). There is no formal application process. Interested scholars simply need to contact Eric Bain-Selbo and provide a brief abstract of the paper they would submit.
