The influence of Simone de Beauvoir’s thought on Feminism and Feminist Theory is indisputable. Beauvoir’s The Second Sex is unanimously recognized as one of the main pillars of feminist thought and as a major work of the 20th Century. The Second Sex has informed both feminist thought and feminist political struggle and activism.
Beauvoir’s feminism is nevertheless not only reflected through The Second Sex, but also through other philosophical and theoretical books and papers, short essays as well as her fiction and literary works. Thus, we might ask: What kind of feminism does Beauvoir advocate? Or, are there in fact many “Beauvoir’s feminisms”? How are these feminisms connected to other both past and contemporary feminist ideas and feminist struggles?
The 24th International Conference of the Simone de Beauvoir Society will take place at the University of Haifa, Israel, from June 19-21, 2017, hosted by the Women’s and Gender Studies Graduate Program in collaboration with the Philosophy Department.
Keynote Speakers: Prof. Debra Bergoffen, Prof. Margaret Simons, Prof. Gail Weiss.
Questions about the conference can be directed to the conference organizer: Dr. Sara Cohen Shabot
