CFP: 12th Daoist Studies Conference

Authority versus Authenticity: 12th International Conference on Daoist Studies

Beijing Normal University, Beijing, 1-4 June, 2018

[PENDING APPROVAL BY THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION (expected by December)]

You may have a better chance to be accepted if you submit a panel proposal which already has a common theme.

We especially encourage you to submit paper or panel proposals that explore the connections between Continental philosophy and Chinese philosophy. A possible panel on the teaching of Chinese and comparative philosophy is under consideration.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The 20th Annual Harvard East Asia Society Conference:

Roads Through Asia
Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA

The Harvard East Asia Society (HEAS) invites currently enrolled graduate students working across all disciplines to submit abstracts for its annual conference.

This year’s conference will be held from February 24-25, 2017. Participants should plan to arrive on or before February 24, 2017.

The HEAS Conference Committee invites the submission of papers that examine Asia from various perspectives and disciplines, including but not limited to history, philosophy, religion, literature, art history, sociology, anthropology, archaeology, economics, political science, gender studies, environmental studies, and law. Preference will be given to work that speaks to multiple fields or engages critically with those categories and boundaries that define past and present research on Asia.

In its twentieth year, the HEAS Conference is an annual forum for graduate students to exchange ideas and discuss research related to Asia. It is an opportunity for young scholars to present their research to their peers and to faculty members of Harvard University’s department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations.

CFP/CFI: Adventures in Chinese Realism: Past and Present

I am posting this on behalf of Eirik Harris and Henry Schneider:

Chinese Legalism was at its peak in the Qin and Qing eras. Chairman Mao started what would be a brief revival of the ideas of Hanfei and Shang Yang. What role do the ideas of Chinese Legalism / Realism play today? Eirik Harris (City University of Hong Kong) and Henry Schneider (University of Graz) want to explore contemporary applications of Early Chinese Realist / Legal / Administrative / … / thought.

Interested scholars are welcome to participate. At the moment, Eirik and Henry are interested in organizing different panels for both the APA Pacific 2017 (Seattle) and the ICSP 2017 (Singapore). With time, a more ambitious working and publication program can emerge. Scholars, students and all interested people should contact eiriklangharris@gmail.com and hschneider@gmx.ch. If you want to submit papers for the above mentioned panels, you are more than welcome.

Call for short essays on new International Blog “Varieties of Well-Being”

Owen Flanagan and Wenqing Zhao write…

As part of our Templeton-St. Louis funded “Varieties of Well-Being” project, Owen Flanagan and Wenqing Zhao are inaugurating an international blog on well-being in different cultural traditions. We desire to engage in public outreach and to advance the cause of cross-cultural philosophy of well-being. In addition, we seek to help create a passion among people in and outside academia for learning from, not just about, other traditions. An international blog on comparative well-being is designed to share the fruit of the project with broader, international audiences.

We hereby invite you, as someone with experience of multicultural worlds, to write a short essay (200-450 words) on well-being that involves a comparative or cross-cultural aspect. It can be based on your own cultural experience or something that you have observed; a story, a moment or a piece of thought that showcases the variety of cultural norms for living a good life. Details follow below!
