One of the most exciting areas in recent philosophy is metaethics – the investigation of the origins and basis of moral facts, moral concepts, moral knowledge, and moral language. Metaethics is also one of the most historically-oriented parts of contemporary philosophy, regularly drawing inspiration from Plato, Aristotle, Hume, and Kant.
Male European philosophers have not been the only people with metaethical interests, however. This conference aims to introduce overlooked ideas and perspectives into contemporary metaethics. We are particularly (but not exclusively) interested in thinkers from outside the mainstream European philosophical tradition, including thinkers who did not identify themselves as philosophers. To help facilitate discussion, all papers should engage in some way with the framework of contemporary metaethics (as described in, e.g., the Routledge Handbook of Metaethics), though this engagement can be critical.
The conference will take place in August 2018 (exact dates TBD) at the University of Washington, Seattle. Abstracts of around 500 words should be sent to Colin Marshall (email@example.com) no later than December 15, 2017. Invitations to join the conference will be made by late January 2018. We are currently able to award two travel grants of $750 for non-tenured speakers, though we hope to secure more funding in Spring 2018 (please indicate in your submission if you are interested in these grants).
Papers presented at the conference should not be published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. Routledge Press has expressed interest in publishing a collection of papers resulting from the conference, so speakers should be willing to prepare final drafts of their papers by the end of 2018.
I’m forwarding an announcement for a conference that may be of interest: the 23rd Annual Association for Chinese Professors of Social Sciences, Oct. 20-22, hosted by High Point University in North Carolina. This conference is an interdisciplinary investigation into globalization and its consequences for the emerging 21st century. Please review the attached PDF if you are interested.
The Department of Philosophy at Tunghai University hereby invites scholars from all disciplines in the humanities to propose papers for the international conference “Interpreting Chinese Philosophical Texts—Theories, Case Studies and Praxis” (解讀中國哲學文本—理論、個案與實踐).
Traditionally, scholars studying Chinese philosophy keep returning to classical texts to rediscover different meanings. Sometimes scholars interpret these texts differently because of the differences of their personal backgrounds, but sometimes it is because of the methodologies they employ. Which different hermeneutic theories are there? How to decide among them? How do such theories figure in the interpretation of classical texts? Scholars are invited to present papers at the conference to reflect upon this fundamental issue for the study of Chinese philosophy. Papers to be presented should fall under one of the following three categories:
- Theories: Hermeneutic theories for the interpretation of philosophical texts.
- Case Studies: How different hermeneutic theories affect the interpretation of a particular Chinese philosophical text?
- Praxis: Interpretations of Chinese philosophical texts.
Details about the conference are as follows:
- Dates: April 20 (Friday) – 21 (Saturday), 2018.
- Venue: Department of Philosophy, Tunghai University, Taichung.
- Organizer: Department of Philosophy, Tunghai University.
- Languages: Chinese and English.
- Paper proposals (title, abstract and CV) should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 25, 2017.
- The Conference Organizing Committee (COC) will inform authors of the acceptance of their proposals for presentation at the conference by September 11, 2017.
- The full-paper should be submitted no later than March 23, 2018.
- All enquiries could be directed to conference assistant Miss Fong-Hsiu Lin, e-mail: email@example.com.
