Welcome to the home page for the 2013 Northeast Conference on Chinese Thought, to be held on Friday and Saturday, November 8-9, at Wesleyan University‘s Mansfield Freeman Center for East Asian Studies.
The goals of the Northeast Conference on Chinese Thought (NECCT) are twofold:
- To provide a regional forum for everyone from graduate students to established scholars to present work, learn from one another, and establish or strengthen mutual relationships; and
- To bring together scholars and students who approach Chinese thought from diverse disciplinary perspectives so as to foster understanding of our various objectives, perspectives, and constraints—the point not being to privilege one approach or hope for a grand synthesis, but simply to encourage each of us to be less insular and to find ways to learn from the approaches of others.
All are welcome to attend the conference, though if you would like to be included in meals, preregistration is required.
The conference schedule, with links to abstracts, is here.
Other logistical information is available here.
