We would like to invite you to our next EACP ONLINE EVENT:

COMPARATIVE, POST-COMPARATIVE, OR TRANSCULTURAL?
CHINESE PHILOSOPHY AND NEW METHODOLOGIES

Date and time: Friday, July 23, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 (CET)

Speakers: Fabian Heubel, Hans-Georg Moeller, Vytis Silius, Geir Sigurðsson, Ralph Weber and Jana S. Rošker

Location: ZOOM Link: https://uni-lj-si.zoom.us/j/95736132076

Topic: EACP online event (POST)COMPARATIVE TRANSCULTURAL PHILOSOPHY

Meeting ID: 957 3613 2076

At the beginning of the event, each of the speakers will give a very short (max. 10 minutes) individual statement on the topic, which will then serve as a starting point for the subsequent general debate with the audience.

In this debate, we will all collectively share our ideas on some of the "hot questions" that stir many minds in contemporary research on Chinese philosophy. These may include (but need not remain limited to) the following topics:

"The Board of the EACP wishes to announce its full and unanimous support and endorsement of the statement (http://chinesestudies.eu/?p=4435) issued on 9 April 2021 by the European Association for Chinese Studies (EACS) regarding the recent sanctions issued by the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs against European China researchers."

The Board of the European Association for Chinese Philosophy, 19 April 2021

23 April 2021 (14h00-16h00 CEST)

Speakers: Ralph Weber, Philippe Major, Chan Yim Fong and Milan Matthiesen (University of Basel).

While European-language scholarship on Modern Confucianism has been steadily expanding for the last 20 years, the approaches adopted in the field have remained for the most part either philosophical or historical. Building on the strengths of such approaches, the workshop will argue for an opening up of new and/or interdisciplinary perspectives by focusing on the value of a digital humanities approach to Modern Confucianism. Situated in the broader framework of a Sociology of Modern Confucian Philosophy, a digital humanities approach has the potential to reveal new and unforeseen perspectives on Modern Confucian Philosophy. For more information on the presenters’ Sociology of Modern Confucian Philosophy project based at the Institute for European Global Studies of the University of Basel, please visit their homepage at https://europa.unibas.ch/de/forschung/european-global-knowledge-production/the-exterior-of-philosophy/.

The event is organized by the European Association for Chinese Philosophy. If you would like to attend this event, please register with Philippe Major: philippe.major [at] unibas.ch
