"Psychoanalysis and Media" (SCMS, Seattle, March 19-24, 2014) Deadline August 15

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 - 9:01pm

This panel invites proposals for papers that work towards complicating and exploring the intersections and problematics of psychoanalysis and media studies. Psychoanalysis has been crucial in the evolution of critical theory, and we contend that it remains a vital influence on contemporary discourse. We seek papers that address the ways in which psychoanalysis is a productive interlocutor, methodology, and object of study in the field of media studies. Papers could consider the tensions between the clinical practice of analysis and the use of psychoanalysis theoretically to discuss social and political questions. Additionally, papers might discuss questions of the psychic lives of media, affect, sexuality, race, and/or gender.

The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992, is the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States.

There is no restriction to any particular political/cultural ideology or to specific critical practices. The Colonial, Postcolonial, and Decolonized eras all are of interest. We welcome and seek to encourage a variety of approaches and viewpoints, and the generation of wide-ranging, productive debates.
