Bernie Rhie (Williams) and Richard Eldridge (Swarthmore) are organizing a fascinating conference with and around Stanley Cavell at Harvard University from October 14-16. PAL is co-sponsoring the event. For preliminary information about the conference, click here.
I have posted a link to Meryl Altman’s defense of the new translation of The Second Sex under “Essays”, but include it here too. The essay appeared in the September 2010 issue of The Women’s Review of Books.
Toril Moi will give the HSRRC Annual Lecture at the University of Nottingham (UK) at 5 p. m. on Tuesday 29 June, 2010, in the Arts Centre Lecture Theatre. The title of her lecture will be “What Does It Mean to Claim that Sex, Gender and the Body Are Socially Constructed?”
On Wednesday 30th June she will lead a seminar on the new translation of The Second Sex, in the French Department at the University of Nottingham. The seminar will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Place TBA.
