Manyul and I would like to announce a few changes here at the blog. First, Chris Fraser has decided to change his status from one of the blog’s administrators to simply a contributor; we thank Chris for his help and advice over the years, especially with our move to the commercial server that has enabled the blog to be generally accessible in China.
Second, we seek nominations, including self-nominations, for a small number of Content Acquisition Editors, who will be responsible for seeking out contributions and contributors to the blog’s content, principally for our Feature Post category. The ideal Editor would be someone who is knowledgeable about the work of scholars in Chinese and/or Comparative philosophy (both professionally affiliated and independent) in his or her general geographic area or specialized area of study. We request of all willing nominees a current CV and a brief list of ideas for potential content. Content Acquisiion Editors–who also will be able to post their own contributions, of course–will be listed on the blog’s homepage. All nominations should be sent via email to Manyul and me (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com).
Third, we are happy to announce that we have concluded an arrangement with Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy whereby one article each issue will: (1) be made available for free on-line access, and (2) have a dedicated period of discussion on the blog, led off by a Featured Post that offers a precis of the article and a few critical comments. The article’s author will follow the discussion and offer her or his answers and observations. We will have news about the first article in this WW&W – Dao collaboration soon.
Best wishes for the Holidays and New Year,
Steve & Manyul
