Übergänge – Transitions – 移り渉り: Crossing the Boundaries in Japanese Philosophy
We encourage applicants to send in proposals for individual presentations or group proposals of 3 presenters to collaborate on a panel together. Papers dealing with the conference theme “Übergänge – Transitions – 移り渉り” are particularly welcome, but papers on other aspects related to Comparative & Japanese Philosophy will also be considered.
It is not necessary to adjust your presentation to the general theme in a very strict manner – we want to use the topic in a thought provoking rather than restrictive way! Please feel free to interpret the theme creatively. It is more important that you can give your presentation on a topic you are interested in than adjusting it to the general theme.
Deadline: April 30, 2018 (Abstract 250-500 words with 5–10 keywords & CV)
Conference Languages: English, German and Japanese

Adventures in Chinese Realism: Call for Contributions
Two years ago, Eirik Harris (CityU Hong Kong/ Hong Kong Baptist U) and Henry Schneider (CityU Seattle) launched a project called “Adventures in Chinese Realism,” with a twofold aim. First, it is about re-discovering the Classics of Chinese Realism, for example Han Fei, Shen Dao, Guanzi, etc. Second, it is about applying Chinese Realism to actual issues in political philosophy (at large), for example, assessing Confucian revivalism, dealing with so-called corporate ethics, recasting checks and balances, etc.
The message below is from the undergraduate philosophy club at the University of California, Irvine.
This is a call for submission to the UCI Philosophy Club’s first issue of Falsafa ([n.] ‘Philosophy’ in Urdu), an annual undergraduate philosophy journal. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to get involved in formal, academic philosophical discourse. For those looking to do graduate-level work in philosophy or simply pursue academia, submitting to Falsafa will be an exciting and beneficial opportunity.
The “Fourth Conference on Contemporary Philosophy in East Asia (CCPEA 2018)”（第四屆當代東亞哲學會議）will take place in August, 2018, and hereby issues a Call for Papers. This is a conference open to all fields in philosophy. For more information, see here or read on.
