UK Sartre Society 2019 CFP Out Now!

7176193014_33cca4ba9a_o

We’re pleased to announce that the 2019 conference of the UK Sartre Society will celebrate the 70th anniversary of Simone de Beauvoir’s hugely influential work The Second Sex.

The conference will be held at the Maison Française d’Oxford on Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd July.

Our keynote speaker is Dr Manon Garcia of the University of Chicago, author of the highly acclaimed new book On ne naît pas soumise, on le devient (Flammarion, 2018).

Call For Abstracts

We invite abstracts for papers on any question relating to The Second Sex, especially its reception and influence across the academic disciplines and in public life, its relation to Beauvoir’s life and other works, its relation to other works of existentialism, and the contributions that a renewed attention to this classic work can make to philosophical, ethical, social, and political debates today.

Abstracts should be no more than 500 words. Please bear in mind that each selected paper will be scheduled 30 minutes for presentation plus some time for questions.

All talks at the conference will be presented in English, so abstracts should also be in English.

Abstracts must be submitted through our new online submission system. This is a simple text system, so abstracts cannot include bold, italics, or footnotes. Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously, so should not include any information that would identify their authors.

The submission system will open on Friday 1st March and close at the end of Friday 15th March. We hope to announce the selected papers by the end of March.

The submission system will be available through our website: https://uksartresociety.com/
