Sign up here to receive important updates about the Camus Society.
The Journal of Camus Studies
Formerly the Journal of the Albert Camus Society, the JCS is published annually and is available in print or as an ebook. For more information on purchasing or contributing visit the Camus Journal page.
The Camus Society has no rights to Camus' image, words, etc. and can not grant permission to anyone to use anything.
Possibly. Send us an email with the quote and we'll try to get back to you. Most of the quotes cited on the internet aren't very accurate (see Camus and Football). Websites that publish quotes all seem to copy from one another and once a misquote (or misattributed quote) goes online it spreads everywhere.
Probably. Broad questions such as ‘who was Camus and why was he important' will be answered simply with a list of suggested reading. Requests for clarification on particular issues are more likely to get a detailed response.
It will depend on who you are looking for and what you want them to speak about. If you want someone to represent The Camus Society then it will depend on who is available. If you would like to be put in contact with someone who has, for example, staged a Camus play then we will attempt to put you in touch with someone.
We can help however we will not write your essay for you. If you have a question the best person to ask, in almost all cases, will be your tutor or supervisor.
Great news. Let us know how you're getting on and if you make it to the stage then we'll help you, as far as we can, to publicise the event. We can not grant any kind of permissions or help you find them. One piece of advice/opinion: The Stranger will not make a good stage play. The Fall would make an excellent play.
Sorry, but we do not have the financial resources to fund anything other than our own projects.
We accept academic papers for the Journal of Camus Studies and articles for the Camus Society Website. We do not accept any fiction or poetry.
Please read the Submission guidelines for more information.
Please read Contributing to the website for more information.
Books must be either about Camus or related to Camus' philosophy or literature in some way. We do not review fiction or poetry. Authors and publishers can request a review or we may approach them and request a review copy.
In the first instance send us an email and tell us about the book. We will reply requesting a review copy. The review will be published in the book reviews section of the website. A shorter version of the review will also be sent out to our mailing list along with details of where the book can be published. Reviews of newly published academic books will also appear in the Journal of Camus Studies.
This depends on the books and the person reviewing it. We can not guarantee a timescale for reviews. As a rough guide, a book of popular philosophy will probably only take a couple of weeks to read and review. However, it will take several months to review a lengthy and complex philosophical monograph.
Send us an email and tell us about it. For a play, you will need to send us an invitation to the press night performance or, if you have one, a DVD of the performance. For documentaries, send either a invitation to the screening or a DVD. Bear in mind that unless a reviewer lives a reasonable distance from the theatre it is unlikely that they will be able to make it to the performance. Do not send us scripts of plays that have not been performed.
Two great biographies are Herbert Lottman's and Olivier Todd.
Take a look at our review section.
