CALL FOR PROPOSALS
SACP Panel at the Annual 2016 Meeting of
The Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy
Benson Hotel, Portland, Oregon; March 3-5, 2016
Due Date: October 15, 2015
Forty-seven years after its first meeting, the Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy continues to play an important role in creating avenues of philosophical dialogue between cultural traditions. In the past six years, during the presidencies of Peimin Ni, Roger T. Ames and myself, the Society has begun to expand to more national and international venues, established sessions at a broader range of professional meetings, introduced our Society to potential new members through social media, structured its conferences so as to put Asian traditions of thought into dialogue with one another as well as comparatively with western traditions, and attempted to integrate wider varieties of traditions into its conferences. In order to flourish, expand the membership and hopefully establish the Society as a truly global one, it is hoped these trends will continue and be strengthened in the coming years.
