Engage in great conversation while we sip affordable, delicious happy hour drinks and munch on tasty bites. Join us on the outdoor patio, which features lights and a giant redwood tree, as we talk about graduate and professional life. This is a great opportunity to unwind after your day and start spring off right with your colleagues. The Double Standard is conveniently located in downtown Oakland, just steps from the 19th Street BART station.
What might the oceanic feeling have to do with music? One answer is that Freud claimed to feel neither of them, a biographical detail that is often attributed to his anxiety about undifferentiation, a fear of sameness, literal homophobia. This program resumes a Freudian voyage potentiated by his sea-change theory of sexuality using contemporary cultural objects including William Finnegan’s surfing memoir, Barbarian Days; John Luther Adams’ environmentalist composition for orchestra, “Become Ocean”; and Frank Ocean’s Blonde trilogy to explore and contrast the erotics of identification (based on shared experience) with sexual complementarity (based on difference) through the work of Adam Phillips, Harold Boris, Leo Bersani, and Jean Laplanche.
