Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) (Web)

Proposals by: 31.12.2020

Simone de Beauvoir Studies is a peer-reviewed multidisciplinary journal dedicated to advancing scholarship relevant to the writings, thinking, and legacy of Simone de Beauvoir. Founded in 1983, the journal aims to cultivate outstanding scholarship within and across relevant disciplines and promote international and cross-cultural exchange.

SdBS places particular emphasis on recognizing diverse social, cultural, and disciplinary receptions of Beauvoir’s thought and on featuring cutting-edge approaches to the investigation of her oeuvre. SdBS is published by Brill on behalf of the International Simone de Beauvoir Society. Articles are published in English or French.

SdBS seeks submissions of scholarly articles as well as submissions of creative, journalistic, experimental, and autobiographical writing that bring new and underexplored disciplines, discourses, cultures, and ideas into conversation with Beauvoir’s legacy.

Submissions need not treat Beauvoir’s writings directly as long as they speak to a central theme in her work such as gender studies, global politics, existentialism, and literary theory.
