Race and the Psychoanalytic Clinic (ACLA 2019)

Psychoanalytic theory continues to be a powerfully productive discourse for queer theory, critical race theory, Asian-American studies, and Black studies. Queer theorists, for example, have located in Sigmund Freud’s “Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality” the “polymorphous perversity” that constitutes all human sexuality. Yet, while queer theory and psychoanalysis has had a lot to say about subject formation, the death drive, and anti-social forms of belonging, they have had very little to say on the conditions which allow access to such conceptual models.

Anti-Oppressive Solidarities: "Third World" Feminism's Leadership against Imperialism

updated: 
Wednesday, September 12, 2018 - 11:23am
50th NeMLA Anniversary Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session will present work by scholars on the literature, movements, activism, and cultural production from the regions of Latin/South America, Africa, and Asia, which have, in a showcase of imperial language, been described as the “Third World” by those in the industrial West. This session topic is vital and timely as the Trump administration’s rhetoric toward Africa as having “shithole countries” and the United States’ history of colonization as “taming countries” calls upon us all to actively resist such violently colonial discourse with the narratives, stories, and experiences directly from the people of these areas.

Since the 1980s, when the Jameson-Ahmad debate over how to read literatures putatively labeled as “third-world” and the notion of empire writing back to European literary traditions held sway in postcolonial studies, new contexts and ways of reading postcolonial and Anglophone literatures have been introduced and taken up.
