This includes, but is not limited to, Chinese, Cambodian, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Mongolian, Vietnamese philosophical and literary texts from any period. Any papers on the philosophy of translation, philosophy of literatures, critical analyses of existing translations, or ongoing translation projects are welcome.
