This multidisciplinary program, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, will offer four weeks of context-rich engagement with Buddhist teachings, practices and primary texts (in translation), examining how they have shaped and been shaped by the cultures and societies of East Asia. The program will consider how Buddhism addressed both personal and social needs in ways that were inseparable from the dynamics of intellectual exchange, artistic production, trade and politics.
NYU’s Global Institute for Advanced Study plans to hire 3 post-doctoral fellows for the academic year 2018-2019, one each, in philosophy, sociology and economics. These fellows, funded by the Berggruen Institute in relation to its programs around the Great Transformations, will help in the first stages of a project on the ethical and policy issues raised by long-term changes in the labor market.
This special issue (journal to be announced) wishes to foreground the body and embodiment in relation to the law, from both contemporary and historical perspectives. In so doing, this CFP invites contributions that consider the following, but not exclusively: what is the relationship between law and the body, and law and embodiment? How does the law preclude, encourage, marginalize, or stratify particular kinds of embodiment, if at all – and how are particular kinds of embodiment gendered, sexed, classed and/or racialized?

This is a call for papers for a special session at the annual MLA convention to take place in Chicago, Jan 3 - 6, 2019.
We live in the internet era with its mirrored online reality where (almost) everything seems quantifiable, searchable and generally predictable. Our minds are trained to apply logic and reason to analyze the world and organize it using the rules of language. Yet there is a realm outside what is expressible in ordinary language, to which literary nonsense points.
This is a panel taking place at the annual convention of the Rocky Mountain Modern Langauge Association (4-6 Oct., 2018). All papers with comparative analyses are welcome. Please consider submitting your proposal, if at least one of your texts is a non-Western/non-European text.
The aim of this edited collection will be to provide one of the leading guides on the intersections between law and art. The edited collection will therefore bring together a wide range of theorists in relation to, amongst other things, critical approaches to law and art, the intersection between law and art and their mutual relationship, legal categories and definitions and vis-à-vis art movements and particular artworks, and law and art theories.
