Simone De Beauvoir: Cuisine, Nourriture, Existentialisme, Véronique Olivier

World Languages and Cultures Faculty Articles and Research

"En 1949, quand Simone de Beauvoir publie Le Deuxieme Sexe, elle y raconte l'histoire des femmes - son histoire des femmes. Avec regret, la jeune intellectuelle observe a quel point le monde appartient aux hommes, combien la societe a lentement contribue a modeler la femme comme un objet, comme 'l'inessentiel', 'l'autre' (DS 1: 17).

Philosophy

The browning of America promises the bodily, social, and political transfor- mation of the United States, and as with all ethno-racial threats—or promises of deliverance—browning operates through the private, intimate arenas of love, sexuality, gender, family, and friendship. As a demographic idea, the “browning of America” gathers together Native Americans, African Ameri- cans, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Americans with a multiracial identity, as well as non-white immigrants. In popular culture, however, it primarily con- notes the expanding population of Latinos, and Mexican and Latin American immigrants. Secondarily, it includes the growing social and political presence of multiracial Americans ...
