15th Annual Midwest Conference on Chinese Thought
North Central College (Naperville, IL)
April 26-27, 2019
The Midwest Conference on Chinese Thought (MCCT) is an annual conference dedicated to exploring past and present aspects of Chinese thought. It is an interdisciplinary gathering of scholars and students coming from disciplines or fields such as philosophy, religious studies, history, philology, and other disciplines or fields in the humanities and social sciences. While the conference is hosted each year by an institution in the Midwest United States, we welcome the participation of scholars and students from around the world.
This year’s conference will be held on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27, 2019 at North Central College in Naperville, Illinois. Our keynote speaker will be Peimin Ni, Professor of Philosophy at Grand Valley State University and author of Confucius: The Man and the Way of Gongfu and Understanding the Analects of Confucius. Dr. Ni’s keynote address is titled “Theories of the Heart-Mind and Globalization of Confucianism Today: Reflections after Sixty Years of the Publication of the ‘Manifesto on the Reappraisal of Chinese Culture.’”
Submissions are invited for papers on any aspect of Chinese thought, including those dealing with comparative issues that engage Chinese perspectives. As with previous conferences, we anticipate selecting 15-18 papers for presentation. For consideration, submit a 1-page abstract to Brian Hoffert at email@example.com by January 31, 2019 for blind review. More information to follow on the conference website at http://www.indiana.edu/~mcct/home.php.
A great line-up for a conference on political meritocracy, starting tomorrow at Harvard:
An impressive line-up will be featured at this week’s “New York-China Epistemology Conference: 2018.” Mostly analytic epistemology from both Chinese and U.S. participants, with some Chinese sources mixed in here and there.
