Résumé

Dans cet entretien, Claudia Bouliane interroge les principaux.ales éditeur.trice.s de la Pléiade consacrée aux Mémoires de Simone de Beauvoir au sujet des choix qu’ ils ont fait quant à la manière d’ encadrer le lectorat dans sa (re)découverte des écrits autobiographiques de l’ autrice et philosophe. L’ échange s’ organise autour des différentes parties critiques des deux volumes ainsi que de l’ album et soulève des questions d’ ordre méthodologique, en plus d’ éclairer les rapports particuliers de Beauvoir à l’ Histoire, à l’ identité, à l’ amitié, à l’ écriture et à la réception de ses écrits.

Abstract

In the Editor’s Introduction to volume 30 of Simone de Beauvoir Studies, and the first standard issue of the relaunched version of the journal, Jennifer McWeeny identifies two trends in Beauvoir’s scholarship that characterize the present state of the field: the emphasis on the situated, first-person perspective and the need for a holistic method of interpretation that attends to the underexplored or misrepresented moments in Beauvoir’s oeuvre. McWeeny also argues that the events of this year, 2020, have brought us in-sight and an existentialist perception similar to those that fueled Beauvoir’s political awakenings in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.

Abstract

The prospect of a transnational feminist coalition is one of the most challenging questions that feminism faces today. The author analyzes Beauvoir’s involvement with the Algerian decolonization movement and her own self-critique as instructive tools for forming better ways for feminists to engage transnationally. Beauvoir’s existentialist ethics, political writings, and activism continue to offer models for developing an anticolonial and anti-imperialist transnational feminist ethics and are an underexplored resource in transnational feminist scholarship.
