Description

Confucian ethics and Confucian values have experienced a revival in China in recent years. This philosophical system dates back over two thousand years. Its original essence is contested in academic circles. A panel of Australian experts and a well-known Beijing-based scholar will discuss how Confucianism should be understood today, and whether it has any relevance to life in modern Australia.

The discussion will be in Chinese and English, with interpretation.

The panel will comprise:

Yu Dan 于丹, Professor, Vice Dean of Art and Communication School, Beijing Normal University; Dean of Beijing Institute of Culture Innovation and Communication

Dimitris Vardoulakis, Associate Professor, Deputy Chair of Philosophy, Western Sydney University

Sean Moores 周思频, Lecturer in Chinese and East Asian Thought, Asian Studies Program, University of Sydney

Shirley Chan 陈慧, Associate Professor, Chinese Studies, Macquarie University; President, Chinese Studies Association of Australia

Moderator: Jocelyn Chey 梅卓琳, Professor, Director of Australia-China Institute for Arts and Culture, Western Sydney University
