From his emergence as a world-famous philosopher, dramatist, and novelist to his becoming the ‘world’s conscience’ through his political commitment, Jean-Paul Sartre dominated intellectual discourse for a quarter of a century. Shaping the mind-set of a generation between 1943 and 1968, his work influenced writers and thinkers both in France and far beyond.


The contributions address the reception of Sartrean thought outside of France, reflecting on its presence in the areas of literature, philosophy, psychology, and sociology. Through analysis of different forms of cultural transfer (e.g. translation, censorship) in various mediums (e.g. literary periodicals, plays) and institutions (e.g. universities, libraries), the conference seeks to explore and re-examine the worldwide impact of existentialism.
