Call for Proposals

This Group invites proposals concerning any aspect of Confucianism from any geographical area. Topics of particular interest this coming year are:

  • Confucianism, death, and after

  • For a possible cosponsored session with the Buddhism Section, connections between Confucianism and Buddhism

  • Archaeological discoveries and Confucian texts

  • Contemporary representations of Confucianism, postmodern Confucianism, and/or Confucius institutes

  • Roles and agency in Confucianism

  • Feelings and emotions

Prearranged roundtable and papers session proposals have a much better chance of getting accepted than individual paper proposals. Panels that are in the traditional two-and-a-half-hour format are welcome, but we also encourage applicants to propose panels in a ninety-minute format. This can take the form of a mini-panel or a symposium on a particular text, author, or pedagogy. Underscoring that Confucianism is not just a Chinese phenomenon, we would also like to encourage people working on Confucian topics outside of China to send in proposals.

Mission

This Group is committed to the study of the diversity of religious traditions associated with Confucius and his followers, including areas where Confucian thought and practice intersect with those of other traditions. The Group embraces historical, philosophical, and dialogical approaches, and is not located in any single country or discipline.

Anonymity of Review Process

Proposer names are visible to Chairs but anonymous to Steering Committee members.
