Simone the Beauvoir and Diverse Lineages of Existentialism
The 26th International Conference of the Simone de Beauvoir Society
As part of the second Diverse Lineages of Existentialism conference, the 26th International Conference of the Simone de Beauvoir Society
will take place June 3-5, 2019 at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
We are excited to be a part of the exploration of how different “traditions” in existentialism are historically, ethically, and politically aligned, where they are distinct,
and when they are in tension. The Society’s conference thus aims to consider Beauvoir’s work in relation to the diverse lineages of existentialism.
We invite papers that focus on Beauvoir’s contributions to existentialism and feminism, especially the ways her work shapes and is shaped by “canonical” existentialism
and how her work inspires contemporary developments in the tradition. Papers that re-historicize and re-politicize Beauvoir’s work and her contributions to existentialism and feminism,
focus on transnational and intersectional issues, explore the intersections, or lack thereof, between decolonial feminisms, and consider her work in new ways in relation
to activist thinking today are desired, but all will be considered. We welcome work from a variety of perspectives, including philosophical, literary, comparative, and historical, among others.
To submit a proposal for a paper, please send an abstract, prepared for anonymous review, of no more than 350 words in English and a short Curriculum Vitae which includes
your contact details and institutional affiliation, if any, to
