International Summer School: Philosophy in Times of Crisis – Theoretical Perspectives East and West

E-Mail Adresse für Einreichungen: summerschool@izew.uni-tuebingen.de
Deadline: 01.01.2021
Call-Bezeichnung: Call for Papers
Ort: University of Tübingen

Ende: 14.08.2021 --:--
Veranstaltende Institution: IZEW

The summer school aims to bring together leading experts and junior scholars from the fields of social and political theory as well as Chinese philosophy. Our starting point is the frequently proclaimed crisis of liberalism which is often taken to affect the very heart of Western political values and identity. At the same time, public debate frequently points to Chinese Philosophy as a rival approach in political theorizing. It is our goal to move away from such an antagonistic framing. Rather, we aim to explore what resources thinkers from east and west have to offer in times of crisis.

We invite applications from doctoral and post-doctoral students for participation in the event. A small number of slots is available for participants to present their own work on issues related to the overall theme of the summer school. Limited funding is available to (partially) cover travel and accommodation costs.

To apply please send the following materials to summerschool@izew.uni-tuebingen.de:

- A curriculum vitae (including list of publications)

- A brief letter of motivation (1-2 pages)

- If you want to apply for a presentation: An abstract (500 words) on the conferences’ topics.


The deadline for applications: January 1st, 2021.


The event is funded by the VW Foundation.
