Details:

 

The LGBTQ STUDY GROUP of the William Alanson White Institute presents:



FOLIE Á DEUX: A Dramatic Reproduction

 

Presenter: Andrew Anson, MD


Wed. January 8, 2020

8:30 - 10:00pm

William Alanson White Institute

20 W. 74 St., Room 3A

 


Description:

FOLIE Á DEUX explores a famous case of lesbian folie á deux from 1911 in the context of our current political and institutional climate.  The paper considers Freud's essay "Notes on the Unconscious in Psycho-Analysis" from the following year, and how Freud's definition of the unconscious being a "dramatic reproduction" could be used both for and against these women, but ultimately (indirectly) sealed their fate.  Finally, the paper repurposes Freud's ideas to construct a queer analytic lens through which to see trauma, madness, and the unconscious in new light.

 

Presenter:

Dr. Anson is a writer, a queer aesthete, a 5th year analytic candidate at White, the director of The Young Freuds (www.theyoungfreuds.com), and a psychooncology attending at Yale New Haven Health.
