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 is now open: https://goo.gl/forms/bw2rW3HzvDoSMaB63 and will close at the end of Friday 15 March 2018. We hope to announce the selected papers by the end of March.

CFP: Existentialism & Political Thought (UKSS 2018)

We’re pleased to announce that our call for papers for this year’s UK Sartre Society conference is now open! The focus of this year’s conference is Existentialism and Political Thought. We’ll be back at the fantastic Maison Française d’Oxford on Friday 6th July.

Our keynote speaker this year is Professor Sonia Kruks (Oberlin), author of Simone de Beauvoir and the Politics of Ambiguity (Oxford UniversityPress, 2012), Retrieving Experience: Subjectivity and Recognition in Feminist Politics (Cornell University Press, 2001), The Political Philosophy of Merleau-Ponty (Harvester, 1981), and numerous landmark papers on the existential and political philosophies of Beauvoir, Fanon, Marcel, Merleau-Ponty, and Sartre.

Call For Abstracts 

What can today’s political debates learn from a renewed attention to the classic works of French existentialism? In what ways should current political theory be informed by the literary and theoretical works of Beauvoir, Fanon, Sartre, and other existentialist writers? How well do those works stand up to critical political scrutiny today?

We invite abstracts of papers addressing these questions or any other aspect of the connection between political thought and existentialism.

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.

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 Thursday 1st March and close at 5pm GMT on Friday 16th March 23 March 2018 (Note revised submission deadline!) You can submit your abstracts here: https://goo.gl/forms/MSSUMxQ26nIjqkBh1
