Call for abstracts for the 2022 conference to be held in person at the Maison Fran├žaise in Oxford 4-5 July.

The UK Sartre Society is pleased to announce that their 2022 conference is planned to be held in person at the Maison Fran├žaise in Oxford on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th July. The organisers invite abstracts on any aspects of the works of Beauvoir or Sartre; and intend to hold a large event ranging across their whole careers and all their genres.

Keynote speakers:
> Professor Meryl Altman (DePauw University), author of Beauvoir In Time (Brill, 2020).
> Dr Henry Somers-Hall (RHUL), author of Judgement and Sense in Modern French Philosophy (Cambridge University Press, 2022)

There will also be a screening the 1947 film made from Sartre’s screenplay, Les Jeux sont faits.

> Abstracts should be no more than 500 words. Please bear in mind that each selected paper will be scheduled 30 minutes for presentation plus some time for questions.
> All talks at the conference will be presented in English, so abstracts should be in English.
> Abstracts must be submitted through the online submission system. This is a simple text system, so abstracts cannot include footnotes or text formatting. Please prepare your abstract in a simple text editor, then paste it into the form.
> Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously, so should not include any information that would identify their authors.
> The abstract submission system will close at midnight (UK time) at the end of Sunday 24th April, so that the review process can begin the next day.
> The organisers plan to communicate our decisions in early May, then announce the line-up and open registration in the middle of May.
