In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the editors of Simone de Beauvoir Studies and Brill would like to offer 25 articles freely accessible until August 2021. Read them here: https://www2.brill.com/Simone_de_Beauvoir_Studies.
Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal dedicated to advancing scholarship on themes relevant to Simone de Beauvoir’s legacy, such as gender and sexuality, race and culture, feminism, existentialism, literature, and political activism.

The Gender/Sex Disparities in COVID-19 Outcomes guide and toolkit is a powerpoint presentation offered for adoption in introductory-level gender studies, feminist science studies, health sciences, and similar courses. It is accompanied by recommended readings and a user guide for instructors.

The teaching toolkit grows out of the GenderSci Lab’s Gender/Sex and COVID-19 Project. The presentation helps students develop a critical and intersectional understanding of sex disparities in COVID-19 outcomes.

For those who use the tool in class, the Lab is also considering invitations to do 20-minute Q&A sessions to discuss gender/sex disparities in COVID-19 outcomes and the wider work of the Lab with your class, via Zoom. To inquire about availability, please contact us at genderscilab@gmail.com.
