We are pleased to announce the upcoming IARPP colloquium in which we will discuss Eyal Rozmarin’s paper: I Am Yourself: Subjectivity and the Collective, Psychoanalytic Dialogues, 19, 5, 604-616.
This colloquium will run from Monday, May 9 through Sunday, May 22, 2016.
Moderators will be Alejandro Avila Espada and Steven Knoblauch.
With this paper, Eyal Rozmarin demonstrates how he conceptualizes the decisive impact of social and historical forces in our lives and particularly in the psychoanalytic encounter. Using an emotionally powerful clinical vignette and a theoretical perspective woven from the ideas of Michel Foucault, Giles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Rozmarin examines ways in which families function as social agents, unconsciously transmitting beliefs and practices across generations.
In particular he traces a conflict of identification that emerges out of responsibility to kin and responsibility to the collective. We expect that this paper will raise many critical questions concerning the impact of socio-political events on the subjectivities of both analyst and patient, a pressing concern for our practices in the context of current migratory and hybridic forces shaping the subjectivities of so many.
Our international panel will take up the questions and clinical and theoretical challenges of Rozmarin’s paper.
The panel consists of:
Julia Beltsiou (US)
