Two related developments: Bryan Van Norden will spend the next two academic years (2017-18 and 2018-19) as Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple Visiting Professor at Yale-NUS College in Singapore; and Vassar College (Bryan’s home base) has announced a full-time, two-year Visiting Assistant Professor position beginning August, 2017. AOS: Chinese philosophy. AOC: Open. For more details on the position, see below.
Loubna El Amine will speak at the National University of Singapore on March 23; her topic is “The Problem of Political Order in Classical Confucian Thought.” Details here.
Frank Perkins, acting chair of philosophy at his new academic home of Nanyang Technological University (while Chenyang Li is on leave this year), asked me to post this information about NTU’s graduate program:
The Philosophy Programme at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) is now accepting applications for its M.A. and Ph.D. programs. We have a young and vibrant program with strengths in Chinese Philosophy, Philosophy of Science, and Moral Philosophy. NTU is one of the world’s elite universities and was ranked 13th among universities worldwide in the most recent QS World University Rankings.
Frank Perkins has recently been appointed to the faculty of Nanyang Technological University, as an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy. Frank’s work will be well-known to readers of this blog; more information is here. This is a real coup for NTU, which now can make a case for the strongest faculty in Chinese philosophy at any Anglophone university, with Chenyang Li, Alan Chan, Winnie Sung, and now Frank. Congratulations to all!
