The 4th Biennial Conference of the World Consortium for Research in Confucian Cultures

Dates: October 31st–November 2nd 2024

Venue: Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Korea

The Organizing Committee of the 4th biennial conference of the World Consortium for Research in Confucian Cultures gladly announces a call for proposals.

Conference theme: “Between Confucianism and the World: Emotions, Freedom, and Relationships”

Conference and Organizing and Program Committee:

Heisook Kim (Ewha Womans University), Roger T. Ames (Peking University), So Jeong Park (Sungkyunkwan University) (co-chairs)

Peter Hershock (East-West Center)

Jaehwan Lee (Ewha Womans University)

Seonhee Kim (Ewha Womans University)

Doil Kim (Sungkyunkwan University)

Wonsuk Chang (Academy of Korean Studies)

Sponsors: Institute of Philosophy at Ewha Womans University, Center for K-Academic Expansion Project and 3T R&E Project Group based on Confucian, Eastern and Korean Philosophy at Sungkyunkwan University

As we witness today the world seems to be in a perfect storm--from the inner self to global level. In this conference, we hope to address how Confucianism, as a key cultural resource highlighting human roles and relationships, can respond to such multidimensional crises now afflicting the world. How might we rethink human emotions, individual freedom, and familial and communal relations using Confucian cultural resources?

We encourage the submission of a variety of papers relevant to these topics. We also invite proposals from graduate students hoping this conference will be an opportunity for the young generation of Confucian research.

We are especially grateful to have this meaningful conference sponsored by the Institute of Philosophy at Ewha Womans University and K-Academic Expansion Project at Sungkyunkwan University, institutions representing, respectively, women’s awareness and Korean Confucian traditions.


Due date for individual paper abstracts and panel proposals: June 15th 2024.

Panel proposals and abstracts should be sent electronically to Wonsuk Chang (wnskchng@gmail.com), with a CC to Roger T. Ames (rtames@hawaii.edu) and Sharon Yoon (kingofsharon@naver.com). They should be between 200–300 words, and include a filename that begins with the panel organizer’s or presenter’s last name and closes with the year of the conference, e.g. CHANG2024 or AMES2024. Please use MS Word format.

Individual paper abstracts: The presenter’s name, institutional affiliation, and email address should be included as a heading above the main text.

Panel proposals: The heading of the proposal should include the panel title and the name and email contact of the panel organizer. This should be followed by a brief description of the panel, as well as the names, affiliations, and email addresses of all participants. Please also provide the title and a short abstract of each participant’s paper.

Local accommodation and hospitality will be provided. Participants will be responsible for their own travel. There is no conference fee.

Notice of acceptance of proposals will be sent by mid-July 2024.
