Call for Papers

"Visions of Peace: The West and Asia"

Multidisciplinary Symposium

University of Otago

Dunedin (New Zealand)

10-12 December 2009


"Visions of Peace: The West and Asia" is a

multi-disciplinary symposium which explores various

traditional conceptions of peace in the Asian and the

Western historical worlds. Current literature, prompted by

September 11, focuses on the laws and ethics of just wars;

the ideas and ideals of peace as they were conceptualized by

past Asian and Western thinkers appear to have escaped

scholarly attention. The symposium is intended to fill this

lacuna, thereby shedding light on the hitherto overlooked or

underappreciated visions of peace in the global historical


The event will be organized according to the following

cultural units and traditions: Islamic, Jewish, Indian,

Chinese, Japanese, and European. The symposium will approach

the diversity of the global traditions of the idea of peace

at the interface of religion, philosophy and political

thought from the viewpoint of intellectual history.

The main, but by no means exclusive, focus will be on the

"pre-modern" period (i.e. before c.1800). General

theoretical and historical questions to be addressed might

include: What did "peace" mean in a given tradition? Was it

primarily political? Was peace the end or a means for

something else? Is it achievable in this world? What are the

conditions of peace? What are the contexts in which peace

was valued? What is the relationship between war and peace?

How did each tradition understand the legitimacy of


Plenary speakers include:

John Kelsay (Florida State University), Torkel Brekke

(University of Oslo), Yu Kam-por (Hong Kong Polytechnic

University), Shin Chiba (International Christian University,

Tokyo), and Fred Dallmayr (University of Notre Dame, USA).

Proposals for papers should be submitted to Dr Takashi

SHOGIMEN (Department of History, University of Otago) at

<takashi.shogimen@otago.ac.nz> by 15 April 2009.

Papers on the idea of peace in any of the aforementioned

cultural units or on cross-cultural comparison are welcome.

The proposal should include the title of the paper, a

150-word abstract which specifies the cultural unit and

chronological period that the paper discusses, and the

contact details including the presenter's name, home

institution and email address. Submission of proposal does

not guarantee its acceptance. You will receive an email by

early May announcing whether or not your proposal has been

accepted. The delivery of the paper should not exceed 20

minutes, which will be followed by 10-minute discussion, and

the English language must be used. Due to the

cross-disciplinary nature of the event, accessibility of the

paper without compromising its scholarly quality is


A refereed volume of selected symposium papers will be

edited and published by a leading international publisher.

Institute of Philosophy & Institute of Musical Research

16-17 June, 2009

Supported by the British Society of Aesthetics


Confirmed keynote speakers include: George Benjamin, John Deathridge,

Deirdre Gribbin, Jerrold Levinson, Susan McClary, Roger Scruton

Convenor: Guy Dammann, Institute of Musical Research

Music has commonly been considered the most elusive of artforms and yet

throughout history there have been frequent assertions of its strong links

with our moral sensibilities. While this situation may suggest shifting

views and expectations of art and music, it may also point to some deeper

questions about the nature of music and morality.

In the context of increased academic and practical interest in the

question of music's moral value and potential, we are seeking

contributions from academic and practical musicians, philosophers,

psychologists and historians of ideas, offering critical reflections on

questions or cases that touch on the theme of music and morality.

Interested contributors should send, in a first instance, a 300 word

abstract for a proposed paper of not more than 20 minutes reading time to

Valerie James, Institute of Musical Research, music@sas.ac.uk by the

deadline of 31 January 2009. Notice of acceptances of submissions will be

announced within one month of this deadline.

General questions of interest include but are not limited to the following:

Can music yield moral knowledge or understanding?

Must good music have a moral value?

Is there such a thing as immoral music?

Is the idea of morality in music compatible with aesthetic formalism?

ru_historyДля тех, кто вдруг еще не в курсе.

Как вы все знаете, в рамках проекта Google Books в американских библиотеках постоянно оцифровывается немалое количество изданий на русском языке. Во избежание проблем с авторскими правами издания ХХ века под оцифровку не попадают.

Помимо того что поиск таких оцифрованных книг в Google Books затруднен из-за разнобоев в описаниях (то транслитом, то по-русски, и т.д.), скачать найденные полные тексты с российских ip-адресов невозможно.

В связи с этим хотел бы предложить вашему вниманию результат подвижнического труда нескольких неизвестных мне людей, которые коллективными усилиями выявили, скачали, перевыложили на rapidshare и сделали каталог более чем 3500 российских дореволюционных изданий по истории общим объемом более 65 Гбайт.

Каталог постоянно пополняется, при этом в нем представлены не только монографии, но и большое количество периодики.
