ACPA Call For Commentators for 2013 Pacific APA Group Sessions

[From Dr. Bai Tongdong, ACPA President and Professor of Philosophy, Fudan University]

Dear all,

The Association of Chinese Philosophers in North America (ACPA) will try to host two panels at 2013 Pacific Division Meeting of the American Philosophical Association (APA).  Due to the limitation of space, the second panel might not be accepted by APA (this happens to all group meetings), but we are very hopeful.  Each presentation will have a commentator to comment on.  Please reply to me at baitongdong [at] gmail [dot] com if you are interested in commenting on any of the six presentations we are going to propose to APA.  Thank you for your considerations!
Best wishes,
