Monique Wittig: Twenty Years Later – Université de Genève
In 2023, we will mark the twentieth anniversary of the passing of the lesbian activist, writer and
philosopher Monique Wittig (1935-2003), as well as the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of
her Corps lesbien, with a two-part international conference: « Monique Wittig : Twenty Years
Later / Monique Wittig : Vingt ans après ». Hosted jointly by the Department of French at the
University of California – Berkeley and the Institut des Études Genre at the Université de
Genève, this conference seeks to encourage new directions in scholarship on Wittig and to
stimulate transatlantic and international exchange about her work.
