Call for Papers: The Analytic Scene: Translations and Transferences
Deadline for Submissions: April 9th, 2007

The Psychoanalysis and Sexuality Research Unit of the Institute for
Humanities Research (IHR) at the University of California, Santa Cruz
invites submissions for its May 2007 graduate student conference, "The
Analytic Scene: Translations and Transferences," tentatively scheduled for
Saturday May 26th. The Psychoanalysis and Sexuality RU, now in its third
year, is an interdisciplinary faculty-graduate student research group that
reads psychoanalytic work together and
occasionally sponsors speakers and conferences.

"The Analytic Scene: Translations and Transferences" will bring
together papers from various disciplines that address key psychoanalytic
concepts in the context of an interdisciplinary
approach. We are interested in exploring the translation of the
clinical "scene" into different theoretical registers, as well as the status
and limits of psychoanalytic reason in the history of reason,
and deconstruction in particular. Central questions include: what is the
specificity of psychoanalytic knowledge and the psychoanalytic
method? What is the relationship of psychoanalysis to other
established and emerging disciplines and contemporary deployments of
categories such as race, class, and power?

Paper topics may include but are not limited to:
The relationship of psychoanalysis to traditional disciplines such as
philosophy, cultural studies, linguistics, and theology, as well as
emerging fields such as critical race studies, visual studies,
feminist studies, and queer theory.

Deadline for Submissions: April 9th, 2007.
Abstracts should be between 300-500 words, and must include the title of the
contribution, institutional affiliation, and e-mail address.
Electronic submissions should be sent as Microsoft Word .doc or Rich
Text Format attachments to<>.
Please put the
word "submission" somewhere in the subject line.
