The long-awaited “Simone de Beauvoir Today” symposium is here! It is co-organized by PAL (Duke’s Center for Philosophy, Arts, and Literature) and Women’s Studies at Duke. We have had almost 100 registrations for it, way beyond expectations. For a pdf file of Â the full program, click here:Â SdB Today 2011 Program. For a link to the program, click here.

The two distinguished philosophers Cora Diamond (University of Virginia) and James Conant (University of Chicago) will come to Duke’s Center for Philosophy, Arts, and Literature some time in the academic year 2011/12. This is great news for PAL, and for the Duke community interested in the intersection between philosophy and literature and other arts. More information will be forthcoming on the PAL website in due time.
