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.

On Wednesday, September 24 our meeting will discuss "The 'Triumph' of Religion: Lacan, Christianity and the Passage to the Father" with Cleo Kearns.

On Thursday, November 6, Dr. John Muller will visit our group to discuss his paper, "Reading Freud's Semiotic Passion," which addresses Freud's paper on screen memories.
