Focused on existentialism, this issue explores current writers, thinkers, and texts affiliated with the movement

In 1948, Yale French Studies devoted its inaugural issue to existentialism. This anniversary issue responds seventy years later. In recent years, new critical and theoretical approaches have reconfigured existentialism and refreshed perspectives on the philosophical, literary, and stylistic movement. This special issue restores the writers, thinkers, and texts of the movement to their subversive strength. In so doing, it illustrates existentialism’s present relevance, revealing how the concerns of the past urgently bristle into our own times.

Lauren Du Graf is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University. Julia Elsky is assistant professor of French at Loyola University, Chicago. Clémentine Fauré is assistant professor of French at Brandeis University.
