This spring Professor Don Kulick and ENGAGING VULNERABILITY research fellow Elinor Hållén will be giving a graduate course titled Psychoanalysis 101: Freud & Lacan at Uppsala University. The first session will be held on Friday May 3.

The course will present an overview of psychoanalytic theory as it was formulated by Sigmund Freud and later modified and elaborated by Jacques Lacan. We will discuss the ways in which the theories developed by Freud and Lacan have relevance and weight outside purely therapeutic contexts, and how psychoanalytic concepts such as the unconscious, parapraxes, repression, disavowal, and the Imaginary/Symbolic/Real distinction may be helpful for scholars working in the social scientists and humanities.
