CFP: 1st Carolina Conference on Chinese Thought

Call for Proposals: 1st Carolina Conference on Chinese Thought

Saturday, April 6, 2024, Appalachian State University, Boone, NC

The Carolina Conference on Chinese Thought (CCCT) is envisioned as a regionally-based site for exchange and connection among those interested in Chinese thought, broadly construed. We invite scholars and graduate students based in the Carolinas to share and discuss their work on Chinese thought, drawing from any disciplinary perspective. Presentations focusing on research, pedagogy, and other engagements with Chinese thought are welcome. Works-in-progress are especially encouraged, with the CCCT being a collegial atmosphere for collaboration with others in the region.
