CFP: NAKPA Annual Conference

From Halla Kim:

The North American Korean Philosophy Association (NAKPA) holds its annual conference at Univ of San Francisco, NOV 28-30, 2016 on the theme “From Interactions to Creations: Currents and Counter-currents in Korean Philosophy.” We are pleased to accept proposals for presentations and panels related to the conference theme. For example, the concept of emotion in (a phases of) Korean neo-Confucian movement or the “desire” in the Korean Zen tradition or the body and mind in a comparative framework. Papers on other topics will also be considered, esp. philosophical works related to Korean and comparative philosophy, for example, work that brings non-Korean philosophy into a comparative framework with Korean philosophy. Paper abstracts should be 150-200 words in length. Complete panel proposals should include: panel title, a 150-word introduction to the theme of the panel, and a 150-word abstract for each of the papers. Include each presenter’s name, e-mail address, and institutional affiliation. Graduate students and post-docs are welcome to apply. The winner of the graduate student/post-doc award will be given $500.00 to defray the expenses for travel. The review will begin on June 15, 2016 and primarily close on August 1. The language of the conference is English. Thank you. Please send your submission and inquires to:
