Description

New Translation of de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex Panel discussion

As part of the Sue Weinberg Lecture Series, The New York Society for Women in Philosophy and the Department of Women Studies at the Graduate Center present a panel on the new translation of Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex. The panel will include translators Constance Borde and Sheila Malovany-Chevallier, as well as commentary from Debra Bergoffen (George Mason University). Please join us to discuss the history of de Beauvoir's The Second Sex, controversy over the different translations, and the effects of the translations on the meaning and legacy of de Beauvoir's philosophical work.

Cosponsored by the Center for the Study of Women and Society and  the New York Society for Women in Philosophy (NYSWIP).
