Call for Nominations
SdBS Featured Translation 2021
Deadline: February 1, 2020
Do you know of a previously published article or book chapter that is an exemplar of outstanding scholarship but has not yet received the international and interdisciplinary attention that it deserves? Do you want to recognize a text that has had the greatest impact on your thinking and has changed the ways that you read Beauvoir’s work or consider topics that are in conversation with her legacy such as gender studies, sexuality studies, feminism, existentialism, political responsibility, literary theory, and so on?
Consistent with its mission of promoting international and cross-cultural exchange, Simone de Beauvoir Studies selects one article-length work per year that has already been published and translates it into either English or French in order to emphasize its significance to the field and increase its readership. The SdBS Featured Translation showcases writing of the highest quality, often authored by established scholars, full professors, or others who have produced exceptional work.
Eligible works are any article or book chapter (ideally less than 10,000 words) that was published recently or long ago in any language other than English. Nominations should be submitted by February 1, 2020 and be in the form of a one-page letter that recommends the work and that follows the guidelines for Featured Translation nomination letters posted at www.brill.com/sdbs. Multiple nomination letters for the same work, multi-authored nomination letters, and self-nominations are welcome.
