About Camus Society

The Albert Camus Society is an international organisation made up of three groups: The Albert Camus Societies of the UK, US and Poland. Together we hold a joint annual conference and publish The Journal of Camus Studies (JCS).

The purpose of the Society is summed up in the mission statement for the JCS:

… an interdisciplinary forum for scholarly conversation about the life and work of Albert Camus. … [to be] at the centre of contemporary academic debate and discussion about Camus. [To] provide a genuinely international and interdisciplinary scholarly resource for exploration and examination of the thought of Albert Camus and his contemporaries.
