Next Rutgers Workshop: Call for Proposals

Unlike the first two Rutgers Workshops (the speakers at which were all invited), we are adopting a different approach for the third Workshop, which will take place in the spring of 2016 (not 2015). With this amount of lead-time, we are aiming to find scholars whose work in Chinese philosophy engages directly with that of a scholar working in contemporary non-Chinese philosophy, and to build the workshop’s program from such pairs of scholars, in direct conversation with one another. Our expectation is this will enable more substantial two-way philosophical dialogue. Please read the formal Call for Proposals that follows!

The Third Rutgers Workshop in Chinese Philosophy is now calling for
proposals for papers in Chinese philosophy that directly engage with the
works of living Western philosophers. All topics are welcome. Our aim at
this Workshop is to bring together scholars in Chinese philosophy with
philosophers in the Western analytic tradition on a philosophical topic of
mutual interest. Ideally, submitted proposals will directly discuss the
work of a living philosopher whom we will invite to be paired with the
paper presenter as commentator and discussant.

The workshop will be held in the Rutgers Philosophy Department conference
room on Saturday, April 16, 2016 (please note the year). Please submit a
one page abstract describing your paper and listing 1-3 philosophers whom
you would like to have as your commentator/respondent. For the selected
participants, all expenses, including travel and lodging, will be covered
by the workshop. Please submit your proposal to
by September 30, 2014.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of the
