Call for Guest Editors
Simone de Beauvoir Studies
Deadline: November 15, 2020

Do you have an idea for an exciting theme that would make for an outstanding journal issue? Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) is seeking one or more guest editors for its next Special Issue (SdBS 33.2, October 2022). The Editorial Team is especially interested in proposals for creative, cutting-edge themes that promise to advance scholarship in a variety of disciplines and that speak to the most pressing issues of our time.

SdBS not only encourages proposals for themes that directly address Beauvoir’s writings, but also for those that do not treat Beauvoir’s writings per se but are nonetheless in conversation with her legacy such as gender studies, feminism, sexuality studies, disability studies, critical race theory, postcolonial studies, global politics, twentieth-century history, posthumanism, literary theory, and autobiography.

SdBS welcomes proposals from individuals and from teams comprised of researchers and writers from different countries, and other pairings that harbor multiple perspectives.

Please visit for information on how to submit a guest editor proposal (direct link to proposal guidelines). Proposals for SdBS special issues are reviewed annually and should be submitted by November 15, 2020.
