Confucian Traditions Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

This Unit 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 Unit embraces historical, philosophical, and dialogical approaches, and is not located in any single country or discipline.

Call for Papers: 

We welcome full panel proposals and individual paper submissions on the following themes for 2019.

● State representations of Confucianism

● Contemporary issues that shape our scholarship on Confucianism in earlier historical periods

● Translation workshop on a primary text

● Confucian cult devotion

● Confucianism and animal

● Discussions about a recent book or books on Confucianism

Other topics are also welcome, as are co-sponsored sessions with other Units.
