Simone de Beauvoir Society 16th International Conference – 13 to 15 June 2008
This international conference aims to re-evaluate Simone de Beauvoir’s contribution to 20th century fiction, autobiography, philosophy and politics. Her influence as a major intellectual figure in the history of post-war France will be considered. The conference will assess Beauvoir’s legacies in terms of her influence on subsequent generations of writers and critics, both in France and internationally. Questions of reception, dissemination and translation of Beauvoir’s oeuvre will also be addressed, particularly in the light of recent publications. It is hoped that this focus on Beauvoir’s legacies will be of interest not only to Beauvoir scholars but also to those working in Gender Studies, Philosophy, 20th Century French fiction and life writing.
Registration Deadline:16th May 2008
