My essay on Simone de Beauvoir’s Goncourt Prize winning novel The Mandarins was published early in 2020. Here’s the pdf. Note that there is a snafu with notes 22 and 23 in the wrong place (I only have a pdf of the proofs). The full reference is: Toril Moi, â€œAcknowledging the Other: Reading, Writing, and Living inÂ The Mandarins,â€Â Yale French StudiesÂ nos. 135 & 136 (2019): 100-115. (Special issue: â€œExistentialism, 70 Years Afterâ€, edited by Lauren du Graf, Julia Elsky, and ClÃ©mentine FaurÃ©.)
My new book is in production!Â Revolution of the Ordinary: Literary Studies after Wittgenstein, Austin, and CavellÂ will be published by Chicago University Press in May 2017. I will post more information later.
There will be an exciting symposium on feminist theory after Wittgenstein, Austin and Cavell at the New School in New York on Thursday April 3 and Friday April 4, 2014.
