Topic areas


The psychoanalytic writers workshop is an annual speakers series which invites theorists, critics, and practitioners to discuss and explore theoretical issues.  We meet once a month over the course of the fall semester.  Accepted papers are presented on whatever Saturday fits with the speakers' schedule.  Papers not selected for presentation are still considered for publication in the annual review based on conference proceedings.

This year we focus  on comparative accounts of psychoanalytic theory.  For example, are drive theory and object relations compatible?  Can psychoanalytic theory inform philosophical accounts of mental phenomena and vice versa?  

Paperson all topics pertaining to psychoanalysis will be considered.
