Philosophies of Co-Becoming and the Sino-Island: An International Conference (July 8-9, National Sun Yat-sen University)

Mark McConaghy's picture

Philosophies of Co-Becoming and the Sino-Island is an international conference that will take place on July 8-9, 2022. It will bring scholars together from half a dozen countries to discuss the notion of a philosophy of co-becoming (共生哲學) in our contemporary world. Many of the conference organizers work and teach on the island of Taiwan, which we call the Sino-island, to denote the island's long history as a center of immigration for Sinitic speaking peoples, as well as its rich Sinological institutions and scholarly traditions. In a contemporary world riven by nationalist rivalry, economic inequality, the ravages of climate change, and a global pandemic whose effects are disproportionally borne across diverse populations up to the present day, the notion of how to co-exist- with the natural world, with our own bodies, and with each other- has never been a more urgent one for contemporary thought.

Each panel of the conference will be live-streamed through Webex online software. To register to view the conference online, please fill out the following form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1qLBgfu2cFRg4H6Irkc9p8Owie7RiixP9_qD6sgA-q8g/edit
