195. Simone de Beauvoir and Women of a Certain Age

8:30–9:45 a.m., 303B, LA Convention Center

Program arranged by the Simone de Beauvoir Society

Presiding: Yolanda Astarita Patterson, California State Univ., East Bay

Speakers: Sarah Antinora, Univ. of California, Riverside; Suzanne Lalonde, Univ. of Texas, Brownsville; Tracy Lemaster, Univ. of Wisconsin, Madison; Yolanda Astarita Patterson

Our title applies both to the topics to be addressed by each speaker and to the generational range of points of view our speakers represent. Speakers will address the elimination of the female in Macbeth; Monique, the protagonist of the title story of Beauvoir’s 1967 La femme rompue; conceptions of girlhood found in Beauvoir’s The Second Sex; and the perception of old age in La vieillesse.
