Since 1939, the University of Hawaii at Manoa has been the locus of the most significant recurring event in comparative philosophy: the East-West Philosophers’ Conference.  The CrossCurrents Conference was conceived for the purpose of creating a comparable forum for graduate students who are doing exciting work in comparative philosophy.  The inaugural CrossCurrents conference, held in 2003, included presentations by students from 15 Universities in five countries.  We anticipate that the 2006 conference will  be even more exciting, and we encourage anyone who is working in the broad field of Comparative Philosophy to send a submission.
