"The Triumph of Religion": Lacanian perspectives on (a)theology
Radboud University Nijmegen (The Netherlands)
19-20 September 2007

At a press conference in Rome, 1974, when asked for his opinion about the
relation between psychoanalysis and religion, Lacan promptly replies: "In
the end, it is either the one, or the other." But he hesitates answering the
next question - 'who, then, will win the battle?' - and finally states that
"religion will never go down." Religion, so he adds, will "triumph." And
after a moment of doubt, he feels compelled to say the opposite about
psychoanalysis: it will certainly not triumph, at the best it will succeed
in 'surviving.'

Life Writing
Special Issue 2008

"Trauma in the Twenty-First Century"
Guest editors: Kate Douglas and Gillian Whitlock

This issue of Life Writing seeks to explore the ways in which life narratives of
trauma are circulating in contemporary cultural landscapes. What events and
memories are considered 'traumatic' in the contemporary world and why? Whose
traumatic memories are commemorated in the public sphere? And what is the
political utility of these traumatic memories? What are the implications of
representing an event or memory as traumatic, or in representing an individual
or community as traumatised?

Built Spaces: Earth-Sky and Human Praxes

APRIL 27-29, 2007 — Simon Silverman Phenomenology Center: Duquesne University

The material expression of the human life-world is constructed by establishing patterns oriented through, and by, the earth-sky relation. Human socio-cultural praxes manifest spatially through establishing the fundamental spatiality, “a level”—an equilibrium that is formed through the collusion of the upright posture of the lived-body and the earthly horizon, marking the measure of the earth-sky relation and human experience.
