Wesleyan University’s Mansfield Freeman Center for East Asian Studies is an ideal context for our Institute. Most activities will take place in the Center’s Seminar Room, which is outfitted with a full range of A/V and computer equipment, and has a floor-to-ceiling glass wall overlooking the Center’s Japanese garden. The Center also has computers and limited office space available for use, wireless access throughout the facility, and will house the staff (one full-time administrative assistant and one student research assistant) who will handle the logistical details of the seminar.
Participants will have full use of Wesleyan’s library and information technology resources, including numerous on-line indexes, full-text databases, and other research aids that are specific to philosophy.

Middletown is a charming New England city with a thriving restaurant scene, a multiplex movie theater on Main Street, and ready access to all manner of outdoor activities. We will arrange for housing on campus for participants, including access to a kitchen and common space. Each room has wireless internet coverage and laundry facilities are close by. We can arrange for university housing to be deducted directly from stipends, with the written permission of participants.
