Presentation

Do you have an idea for an exciting theme that would make for an outstanding journal issue? Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) is seeking one or more guest editors for its next Special Issue (SdBS 34.2, Fall 2023). The Editorial Team is especially interested in proposals for creative, cutting-edge themes that promise to advance scholarship in a variety of disciplines and that speak to the most pressing issues of our time.

SdBS not only encourages proposals for themes that directly address Beauvoir’s writings, but also for those that do not treat Beauvoir’s writings per se but are nonetheless in conversation with her legacy such as gender studies, feminism, sexuality studies, disability studies, critical race theory, postcolonial studies, global politics, twentieth-century history, posthumanism, literary theory, and autobiography.

SdBS welcomes proposals from individuals and from teams comprised of researchers and writers from different countries, and other pairings that harbor multiple perspectives.

Guest Editors are an essential part of ensuring the quality and relevance of Simone de Beauvoir Studies. Guest Editors propose the theme of the year’s special issue, prepare a Call for Papers (CFP), advertise the CFP and encourage submissions, send all submissions for peer-review using our on-line system Editorial Manager, select the submissions that will be included in the special issue, and write an Editor’s Introduction for the issue. Special issues standardly consist in six articles or article -length works, and each text is generally between 7000-8000 words in length. SdBS strives to have a balance of French and English texts in each issue (three English articles and three French articles).

The SdBS Editorial Team is especially interested in receiving proposals for creative, cutting-edge themes that promise to advance scholarship in a variety of disciplines and that speak to the most pressing issues of our time. SdBS not only encourages proposals for themes that directly address Beauvoir’s writings, but also for those that do not treat Beauvoir’s writings per se but are nonetheless in conversation with her legacy such as gender studies, feminism, sexuality studies, disability studies, critical race theory, postcolonial studies, global politics, twentieth-century history, posthumanism, literary theory, and autobiography. SdBS welcomes proposals from individuals and from teams comprised of faculty members from different countries, of junior and senior faculty members, and other pairings that harbor multiple perspectives.

Proposal Guidelines

by November 15, 2021.
