Which conferences are on the horizon?

After the IABS, I realised that there were several authors of this blog there, and perhaps even more readers, and that we could have decided to have at least a coffee together. Thus, I thought that we could start sharing where we will be going next, so that others can come to know about what interesting conferences there are and/or we can find out that we are in the same place and decide to meet in person.

As for me, I tend to attend three conferences per year.
I am leaving tomorrow for my last conference in 2014, namely the EAAA (European Association of Asian Art) one in Olomouc, Czech Republic. There, I will host a panel, together with Cristina Bignami and Julia Hegewald, on reuse. You can read more about it here.

In 2015, I will be in May (25th to 28th) in Athens, for the Atiner conference, where I am organizing a panel with Malcolm Keating on langauge as a tools for acquiring knowledge (see the Call for Papers here).

In June-July (28th to 2nd) I will be in Bangkok for the World Sanskrit Conference, where I am organising a panel with Marcus Schmücker on the development of theology in Viśiṣṭādvaita Vedānta (see the Call for Papers here).

In September (10th to 12th) I will be in Venice for the sixth Coffee Break Conference on “Comparison and Comparative Methods”, where I am organising, together with our Andrew Ollett and the CBC team, the whole conference and in particular a panel on comparative theology (see the Call for Papers for the whole conference here).

What about you? What would you recommend to attend? Where can one meet you?

  1. The Pacific Division of the American Philosophical Association, which will meet in Vancouver, April 1-4, has a number of events. I’m on the planning committee and I’ve organized two sessions. One is a book symposium on Christian Coseru’s book, Perceiving Reality: Consciousness, Intentionality, and Cognition in Buddhist Philosophy, with Laura Guerrero, Matthew Mackenzie, Anand Vaidya, and Christian Coseru; the other is a symposium on cross-cultural moral psychology, with Amber Carpenter, Jake Davis, Bronwyn Finnigan, and Jay Garfield. In addition, the International Society for Buddhist Philosophy will be meeting there too. I don’t know the full roster of events of the Society, but there is a book symposium on my book, Waking, Dreaming, Being: Self and Consciousness in Neuroscience, Meditation, and Philosophy, with Jay Garfield, Owen Flanagan, and Jennifer Windt.

    • All sounds terrific, congratulations to you for the conception and organisation! I wish I could attend and since this is not possible, I hope you will find some time to tell us about the conference once it is over.
