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
