Keynote Speakers

Toril Moi

Focused on philosophy, psychoanalysis, and literary theory, Toril Moi stands as a prominent feminist literary critic. She finds great delight in delving into the works of both women writers and intellectuals, as well as those of prominent figures such as Freud, Wittgenstein, J. L. Austin, and the esteemed Stanley Cavell from Harvard University. Her literary contributions largely revolve around the vast realm of feminist theory, with notable works including Sexual/Textual Politics (Methuen, 1985) and What Is a Woman? (Oxford University Press, 1999). Among her notable musings, she regards Simone de Beauvoir as the pivotal feminist thinker of the 20th century, a sentiment that resonates in her publication, Simone de Beauvoir: The Making of an Intellectual Woman (Blackwell, 1994).
