The International Society for Comparative Studies of Chinese and Western Philosophy (ISCWP) plans to sponsor one or two panels at next year’s Pacific Division Meeting of APA, which will take place at the Westin St Francis in San Francisco from March 27 to 30, 2013. We hereby invite submissions.
Our Goal: We would like to encourage submissions of individual papers that are comparative, as well as panels which combine philosophers working primarily in Chinese traditions with those working primarily in Western traditions, aimed at promoting more in-depth engagement between the two groups. We have not stipulated any specific themes for the panels, but the Board might organize a panel on “The Idea of Justice: Dialogues cross Traditions.” We especially welcome paper proposals on this topic.
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 Sunday September 15, 2012.
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

4. Announcement of papers and/or panels selected for presentation will
be made by late October.
