Lacanian Psychoanalysis in Contemporary Cultural Studies

Class at Faculty of Arts |


Psychoanalysis cannot be taught, but it should be discussed. The purpose of the seminar is to introduce the students to the Freudo-Lacanian conceptual apparatus and to trace the way Lacanian psychoanalysis is ‘used’ in contemporary critical theory.

In addition the students would be introduced to a new perspective in psychoanalytical theory recently emerged in Russia. We would make an attempt to provide a fresh interpretation to the events on the scene of post-colonial critical studies using psychoanalytic theory.
