German 42. Topics in German Civilization. Taught at 10A by Veronika Fuechtner. Freud, Psychoanalysis, Jews, and Gender (Identical to Women's and Gender Studies 67.1 and Jewish Studies 51). This course will examine how Freud's own writings, his biography, and his biographers have shaped the perceptions of psychoanalysis as a specifically Jewish theory and practice. Through a reading of Freud's texts on gender, sexuality, and religion, we will trace the connections between psychoanalysis, Jewishness, and gender that have impacted theoretical discussions. We will explore critiques, including Horney, Reich, and Marcuse, and recent debates on the status of Freud in the U.S. Conducted in English. By special arrangement, this course can also be used to count toward a German Studies major or minor. Open to all classes. Dist: SOC; WCult: CI.
