CFP: ISCWP at 2016 APA Eastern

The ISCWP plans to sponsor one or two panels at the 2016 APA Eastern Division meeting.
Our Goal: We would like to encourage submissions of proposals of individual papers and panels. We encourage papers or panels that promote in-depth engagement between Chinese and Western philosophy. The submissions will be reviewed by all the three members of the board. When we select papers, we normally try to find papers that have common theme to form a panel. You may have a better chance to be accepted if you submit a panel proposal which already has a common theme.

For this year, we would especially like to encourage submissions to form at least one panel around the broad theme: Continental and Chinese Philosophy. Possible topics may include comparative work on individual figures (Heidegger, Levinas, Deleuze, Irigaray, Confucius, Mencius, Zhuangzi, etc.), topics from within these traditions (Hermeneutics and Chinese Philosophy, etc.), and work on 20th century Chinese philosophical figures such as Mou Zongsan, Tang Junyi, Xiong Shili, Liang Shuming, etc.

Eligibility: We continue to welcome non-ISCWP members to propose papers to be included on an ISCWP-sponsored panel, or even propose a panel that is related to the ISCWP’s aims, so please feel free to send this notice to philosophers who might be interested even if they are not ISCWP members yet.

Please send all submissions by April 30, 2015.

1. To submit a paper proposal, please provide a 250-300 word abstract. The abstract needs to include the presenter’s name, institutional affiliation, paper title, and email address.

2. To submit a panel proposal, please provide an overall abstract of the panel topic of 250-300 words, including due justification. It must include the following for each chair, speaker, and commentator on your panel:

  • Name as it is to appear in print
  • Affiliation
  • email address
  • paper title and abstract (for presenters)

3. You may submit a partial panel proposal – the earlier the better – and ask for help in filling it out.

Send abstracts and proposals to:

Sarah Mattice, Ph.D.
