Psychoanalysis, (Trans)gender, and Sexuality [Livestream]

Date and Time:
July 11, 2020 2:00 pm - July 12, 2020 5:30 pm
Description:

Register today for a two-day intensive course featuring AU’s Dr. Tobias Wiggins as guest speaker.

This course is now taking place over 2 sessions on an online platform on Friday 10 July, 2-4.30pm BST and Saturday 11 July 2020, 2-5.30pm BST. A recording will be available for registered attendees to access at their convenience for 7 days after the event.

How can psychoanalysis — as both a theory and clinical practice — productively engage with contemporary concerns surrounding gender and sexual diversity?

What is the relationship between forms of clinical psychoanalytic practice that pathologise or stigmatise particular gender/sexual identities and practices, and more progressive approaches to the field? Is psychoanalysis inherently ‘queer’, or do we have do something to it to make it so? How might clinical practitioners work to become more reflective about the ways in which social and cultural discourses of gender and sexuality impact on the analytic relationship?

Over this two-day intensive course, we will immerse ourselves in political, theoretical, and clinical spaces that bring psychoanalytic theory into contact with queer and trans experience. Day one, led primarily by Dr. Osserman, will feature lectures and close readings of texts that will lay the groundwork for an informed engagement with the emerging field of transpsychoanalytics. Day two will feature presentations and discussions with a series of invited clinicians and scholars working at the cutting edge of psychoanalysis and queer and trans studies.

Audience participation is encouraged. No prior knowledge will be assumed, however a willingness to engage with difficult ideas, and respect for views that differ from your own are prerequisites for participation. In order to facilitate a constructive learning environment, hateful speech (including the active refusal to address individuals according to their stated gender identity) will not be tolerated.
