Toril Moi will give the HSRRC Annual Lecture at the University of Nottingham (UK) at 5 p. m. on Tuesday 29 June, 2010, in the Arts Centre Lecture Theatre. The title of her lecture will be “What Does It Mean to Claim that Sex, Gender and the Body Are Socially Constructed?”
On Wednesday 30th June she will lead a seminar on the new translation of The Second Sex, in the French Department at the University of Nottingham. The seminar will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Place TBA.
On June 20, The Chronicle of Higher Education had an article by Carlin Romano on the new translation of The Second Sex. Mostly about my views on the translation. For a pdf file of the text, please go to “Essays”.
I have uploaded my London Review of Books review of the new translation of Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex under “Other Writing”. The pdf file contains all the letters to the editor as well. My own reply to the translators is included in the file, somewhere in the middle of the letters. You will also find my essay on the old translation of The Second Sex there, for comparison.
