S is the new open access journal of the Jan van Eyck Circle for Lacanian
Ideology Critique. S publishes peer-reviewed essays on Lacanian and
related topics from the fields of art, film and literary criticism,
political, philosophical and ideological critique. With permission, S
also re-publishes hard to obtain essays and translations from seminal
thinkers in Lacanian studies whose work deserves the worldwide
dissemination free online publishing affords.

    S1 Call for Papers

“In every art . . . these realistic shapes represent with a remarkable
constancy this oscillating line which is expressed in fact by the shape
of this elongated S with which I designate the subject for you. Yes.
Exactly for the same reason that when Monsieur Hogarth tries to
designate what is involved in the structure of the beautiful, it is also
exactly and specifically to this S that he refers” (Lacan, Sem. XIII,
lesson of 4.5.66).

The inaugural issue, S1, will present texts that deal with the Imaginary
in the Lacanian sense of the word, as well as essays from the broader
field of (psychoanalysis and) aesthetics. Possible topics include:

    *

      the return of the Imaginary in the later Lacan

    *

      lesser-known writers in Lacan’s work (i.e. other than Sophocles,
      Shakespeare, Claudel, Gide and Joyce): Blanchot, Bataille,
      Plautus, etc.

    *

      the unconditioned Name of the Father

    *

      beauty beyond the phallus

    *

      spaces of conceptual and linguistic impossibility: topology and
      tropology

    *

      aesthetics and ethics are one? (Wittgenstein)

    *

      the scansion of interpretation (Milner)

    *

      the gaze, the look and the ‘other eye’: the tableau in Lacan and

    *

      the site or non-site of the Imaginary in Badiou

    *
