Co-sponsored by the Philosophy Department at SUNY-Binghamton (, the 49th Annual Conference of the Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy ( will be held at SUNY-Binghamton's campus in the beautiful environs of upstate New York.

The conference theme, "Universality and Particularity," is designed to invite scholars representing Asian and cross-cultural traditions of thought to present research on the many aspects of commonality and specificity, from the degree to which they are found in things, knowledge or language to cultural and political perspectives. Of course, those who wish to participate are most welcome to submit abstracts and presentations on the widest variety of topics that correspond to their areas of interest as well. Our Keynote Address will be delivered by the renowned Professor Chenyang Li of Nanyang Technical University in Singapore, and he will speak to us about his important recent work on the aims and potentials of cross-cultural philosophy. The conference will also feature a special plenary panel on Buddhist philosophy, with presentations given by Parimal Patil of Harvard University, Gordon Davis of Carleton University and Emily McRae of the University of Oklahoma.

Presentation and panel proposal abstracts should be sent electronically to Michael Barnhart ( Abstracts for presentations should be between 200-300 words, including a title that begins with the presenter's last name regardless of whatever else is included, e.,g, 'Berger - SACP 2014 Presentation'. The presenter's name must also be stated on the abstract itself. Panel proposals should include the title and a brief description of the panel, names and affiliation of panelists and titles of each participant's presentation. The deadline for submission is April 1, 2014. Notice of acceptance of proposals will be sent to your e-mail address sometime around mid-April, with instructions for how to register and pay the conference fees if you intend to participate.
