CFP: The following are call for papers for Beauvoir scholarship.
“Beauvoir in Conversation”
Vol. 30, Issue 2
Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) is currently accepting submissions for its Fall Issue 2019, which will be oriented around the theme “Beauvoir in Conversation.” There are at least three relevant senses of conversation at play in the essays featured in this special issue. First, it implicates engagement with those thinkers who were Beauvoir’s interlocutors in life or on the page, as well as those conversations that are waiting to happen with thinkers whose ideas and writings speak to Beauvoir’s in some regard. Second, the word invites new disciplinary and interdisciplinary engagements with Beauvoir’s oeuvre, including those that place her ideas in relation to fields such as anthropology, geography, religion, critical race theory, and transgender studies. Third, “Beauvoir in Conversation” explores how Beauvoir is talked about – how her texts and ideas have been received historically, how her sex has influenced how she is heard, and the extent to which her influence extends into popular culture, art, and the spirit of people today. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, but to guarantee consideration for publication in this special issue (Vol. 30, Issue 2) submissions must be received by March 1, 2019. To submit an article, please refer to the SdBS website: www.brill.com/sdbs
