Women, Genre, and Circumstance: Essays in Memory of Elizabeth Fallaize, edited by Margaret Atack, Diana Holmes, Diana Knight and Judith Still, will be published in April by the British publisher Legenda. I have a new essay on Beauvoir’s short story “The Woman Destroyed” (“La Femme rompue”) in the volume. There is also an essay by Elizabeth Fallaize, which has never been published in English before. Click the link to see all the details. I am moved to see so many friends and colleagues coming together to honor Elizabeth’s memory.
From June 27 to July 1, Toril Moi will teach one of the Summer Institutes in Literary Study at the National Humanities Center in North Carolina. The Institute will focus on Doris Lessing’s novel The Golden Notebook.
On Wednesday June 8 at 7 p.m. Toril Moi will participate in a conversation with the British writer A. S. Byatt, to mark the publication of the Norwegian translation of The Children’s Book, at Litteraturhuset.
