Psychoanalysis Study Group

The Psychoanalysis Study Group is an interdisciplinary seminar for academics and clinicians who are interested in psychoanalytic theory. Through close reading of texts and presentations by psychoanalysts and academics, we consider the application of psychoanalytic ideas to patients, texts, film, art, culture, and ideas, leaving room to elaborate points of common interest and points of difference.

We will meet on Wednesday, January 21 at 5:30PM in Haldeman 246.


Past meetings included:

Wednesday, September 24: discussion of "The 'Triumph' of Religion: Lacan, Christianity and the Passage to the Father" with Cleo Kearns.

Thursday, November 6, Discussion with Dr. John Muller of his paper, "Reading Freud's Semiotic Passion," which addresses Freud's paper on screen memories.
