From Scott R. Stroud, ASHR President: The American Society for the History of Rhetoric conference on Diversity and Rhetorical Traditions is taking place next week, May 31 – June 1, in Minneapolis. Here is the link to the conference program and registration information: https://ashr.org/gatherings/symposia/upcoming-symposium/. Attendance at this event is free of charge.
Thanks to the scrupulous work of several graduate student rapporteurs, I am able to share summaries of all the papers presented at the recent 2018 meeting of the Rutgers Workshop in Chinese Philosophy. Read on!
[Moving to top — this event is this weekend, April 27-29.]
The Schedule for the 2018 Northeast Conference on Chinese Thought and Midwest Conference on Chinese Thought (being held together this year for various reasons) has been finalized. All panels will take place in McHugh Hall 205 (formerly Laurel Hall), at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT.
The Nathan Hale Inn on campus (http://www.nathanhaleinn.com) has reserved a block of rooms for the conference available at a discount rate. The block is reserved until March 29th. You can still get the discounted rate after this date with conference affiliation, but the block of rooms will not be saved after this date so it will be “as available.” [UPDATE: You have to call to get the conference rate, rather than book on-line. SECOND UPDATE: Panel listing revised with Chairs.]
It was great to see many old friends, and meet new ones, at the 4th Rutgers Workshop in Chinese Philosophy. For those who were unable to attend, summaries of the papers and discussion will be forthcoming soon. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures :-).
Call for Papers: International conference “4 May 1919: History in Motion — A Political, Social and Cultural Look at a Turning Point in the History of Modern China”
Université de Mons, Belgium, 2 – 4 May 2019

The 4th European Network of Japanese Philosophy (ENOJP) Conference at University of Hildesheim , Germany (Sept 5–8 2018)
Übergänge – Transitions – 移り渉り: Crossing the Boundaries in Japanese Philosophy
We encourage applicants to send in proposals for individual presentations or group proposals of 3 presenters to collaborate on a panel together. 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.
Deadline: April 30, 2018 (Abstract 250-500 words with 5–10 keywords & CV)
Conference Languages: English, German and Japanese

The Fourth Rutgers Workshop on Chinese Philosophy will take place on Friday, April 13. The format will be similar to the third workshop (held in 2016): scholars of Chinese philosophy have written essays engaging with contemporary Western analytic philosophy, and major figures in the latter tradition will respond to each paper. Initial information is here, and I will post updates here as more information becomes available.
