The International Journal of the Asian Philosophical Association (IJAPA)
Call for Papers Date:
The International Journal of the Asian Philosophical Association (IJAPA) - a full text, open access, interdisciplinary, online peer reviewed journal invites proposals for articles on the relationship between Asian literatures and Asian philosophies and religions. We know very well that at times philosophies and religions showed less tolerance to literature. Plato, for instance, associates the artist with dissent and prefers an ideal republic without the poet's presence; the Koran states in verse 26: 224 "and as for the poets those who are lost in grievous error would follow them." Of course, these views are circumstantial and contextual. We are interested in papers that explore the mutual relationship among philosophy, religion and literature and literary studies.
Topics could include, but not limited to:
Buddhism, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, Interfaith dialogue in literature and Philosophy.
Asian philosophies and literary genres.
Asian Literature and Philosophy as dialogue builders among different cultures and civilizations.
Asian Literature and Philosophy as non-violent paths to conflict resolution and peace building.
Identity, gender, sexuality in the works of major Asian writers.
Philosophizing and theorizing queerness in Asian literatures.
Tolerance and cultural diversity in Asian literatures.
Submissions should include a 250-word abstract, a brief bio data, and full contact information. Papers should be sent in MSWord attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org . Articles submitted to the journal should not exceed 4000 words including notes and bibliographical data; should be original and not be under consideration elsewhere. Contributions are accepted in English only. Further information, including instructions for authors can be found at http://www.asianpa.net/ijapa/instructions.html
In addition, the journal seeks qualified referees in the area of Asian philosophical and literary studies. Now refereeing is voluntary, but referees' names will be acknowledged on the cover pages of the journal as an attribution to their contribution to the journal. Those interested please send in a detailed CV to email@example.com
