CFP: 5th Rutgers Workshop in Chinese Philosophy

The Rutgers Workshop in Chinese Philosophy (RWCP) is calling for proposals for its fifth biennial meeting. It will be held at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey, US, on Friday, April 17, 2020 (please note the year). RWCP is aimed at bringing together scholars in Chinese philosophy with philosophers in the Western analytic tradition for in-depth engagements on topics of mutual interest. All topics are welcome. Ideally, submitted proposals will directly address the works of a living Western analytic philosopher whom we will invite to be paired with the paper presenter as commentator.

The proposal should be one or two pages long, describing your paper and listing 1-3 Western analytic philosophers whom you would like to have as your commentator. Please submit your proposal to proposals4rwcp@gmail.com by October 31, 2018. The committee will review the proposals and notify the proposers soon after. A completed and previously unpublished paper from those accepted will be due by Feb. 1, 2020, at which point it will be shared with the chosen commentator. For accepted presenters, all expenses, including travel and lodging, will be covered by the workshop. Due to the nature of RWCP, proposals and presentations will be in English.

The 2020 workshop will follow the same format as our 2018 meeting. For more information on the 2018 workshop, please visit http://rccs.rutgers.edu/component/jevents/icalrepeat.detail/2018/04/13/2151/54/fourth-rutgers-workshop-on-chinese-philosophy-rwcp?Itemid=415.

CFP: Oxford Symposium on Comparative Political Philosophy

I am happy to post this on behalf of Baldwin Wong, Elton Chan, Larry Lai, and Nikolas Kirby (whose contact info is available at the end):

1st Oxford Symposium on Comparative Political Philosophy

10th – 12th July, 2019

Blavatnik School of Government, The University of Oxford

Keynote Speaker: Prof. Stephen C. Angle (Wesleyan University)

We are a group of scholars aiming to facilitate substantive philosophical argument amongst political theorists across diverse cultural traditions. In recent years there has been an increasing interest among Anglo-American political theorists in comparing the diverse ways of how the thinkers of different cultural traditions address political issues. Several academic publishers (such as Cambridge University Press and Princeton University Press) and journals (such as American Political Science Review and European Journal of Political Theory) have published work about Confucian, Islamic, Indian and African political theories. Yet despite this growing body of literature, there is still inadequate substantive engagement across different traditions about fundamental questions in political theory and public policy. The driving interest of our project is to promote such engagement, comparing competing (or possibly similar) answers to substantive questions, testing arguments and assumptions across traditions in philosophical debate, and then ask whether this debate can shed light on questions of substantive policy.

With these issues in mind, we attempt to create a regular platform for fruitful cooperation and exchange of ideas among comparative political theorists. This three-day symposium is the first step. Scholars are invited to present their recent, original research in this subfield. The symposium each year will be organized around a particular theme in political theory and public policy.
