The concept of “the field” emerged simultaneously in the biological, physical, and social sciences as the major paradigm shift of the early 20th century.
This course will explore the intersection of patient and therapist/subject and interviewer when the therapy/interview relationship stalls, implodes, or explodes. How do we understand relational k(nots); the ways in which some aspect of the therapy/interview becomes seemingly impenetrable? Who said what to whom, and what was meant? These distressing miscommunications are often at the heart of a treatment, can destabilize an interview, and feel excruciating to one or both parties. What is felt to be unspeakable? What unconscious material is being enacted?
Masculinity has become a heavily saturated word: contemporary psychoanalytic, sociocultural, and academic writers, scholars, and theorists have wrestled to evolve masculinities pertinent to the 21st-century man. This 12-week seminar will draw upon literature from psychoanalysis, cultural and social theory, men’s studies, queer theory, gender theory, cinematic studies, media and advertising.
