History dislocated in a Nightmare

Saturday, December 2, 10:00am–12:00pm

flyerMainstream psychoanalytic discourse essentializes, privatizes and views ideology as an extension of intra-psychic economy, while cultural theory complicates our understanding of the subject as always-already constituted by the socio-cultural matrix. This revision has implications for our theoretical concepts as well as how we think of the analytic frame. Presenting an analytic treatment haunted by the burnt landscapes of Nazi:Jewish history and contemporary nationalist identifications, Dr. Guralnik will discuss how the socio-political undergirds and complicates psychoanalytic discourse. She will introduce her theory of  dissociation as the primary mechanism through which ideology takes hold of the subject.
