Research Seminars


The Leslie Research Seminars offer faculty the opportunity to share and develop shared interests in a relaxed, but focused environment. If you are interested in forming a Research Seminar, please contact the Director.

Coordinators: Sally Ackerman, Aden Evens (English), Veronika Fuechtner (German Studies), Susannah Heschel (Religion)

The Psychoanalysis Study Group aims to create an interdisciplinary dialogue among academics and clinicians who utilize psychoanalytic theory.  The group plans to invite practicing psychoanalytic clinicians to present papers with Dartmouth faculty as respondents, and to have professors present papers with clinicians as discussants.  The hope is to foster on exchange about the application  of psychoanalytic ideas in relation to patients, texts, film, art, culture, and ideas, leaving room to elaborate points of common  interest and points of difference.

This study group hopes to meet five or six times per year, with papers pre-circulated and a discussant directing the exchange about the paper.  Our goal is to foster new and creative thinking about varying psychoanalytic themes and trends through interdisciplinary discourse within the college and beyond it.  We also hope that these exchanges will foster new applications of psychoanalytic thinking through emerging courses in the college and interdisciplinary research.
