16th Annual Midwest Conference on Chinese Thought
University of Louisville (Louisville, KY)
April 25-26, 2020
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 Saturday, April 25, and Sunday, April 26 at the University of Louisville, in Louisville, KY. Our keynote speaker will be Justin Tiwald, who has authored many books, articles, and translations, including Neo-Confucianism: A Philosophical Introduction (with Stephen C. Angle), and he is currently working on Well-Being as an Object of Moral Concern: Dai Zhen on Ethics and Welfare.
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 Julianne Chung at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1, 2019 for blind review.
