The Asian Philosophical Texts Conference conference aims at providing a platform for scholars in the field of Asian Studies and world philosophies to discuss and reflect on the task of translating Asian philosophical texts (in the broadest sense) into western languages. This includes, but is not limited to, Cambodian, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Mongolian, Vietnamese etc., philosophical texts from any period. The conference is welcoming any papers on the philosophy of translation, critical analyses of existing translations, or ongoing translation projects for its upcoming conference. Contributions from early and mid-career scholars are welcome and the conference will be a part of an ongoing international collaboration project. The conference will be held at the University of Edinburgh on November 12-13, 2022. Read below for information on submissions.

All submissions must be in .doc, .docx, or .pdf and should be prepared for blind review.
