118th PAMLA Conference. Las Vegas, Nevada at the Sahara Las Vegas Hotel, hosted by UNLV.Thursday, November 12 - Sunday, November 15, 2020.Special Session: "Community in Shakespeare's Tragic Plays: 'The Great Image of Authority.'" Chair: Alfred J. Drake, CSU Fullerton (Retired).Short Description: Shakespeare’s tragedies are as much social and collective as they are individual. Many of the tragedies stage not only the downfall of an erring protagonist but the lasting damage done to an entire society in the wake of grave errors and violent conflict.
Confronted with a shortage of literature on actual poverty and homelessness in the field of analysis, Patricia Gherovici has commented that “One might talk about the psychoanalysis of poverty,” but one could perhaps moreeasily “talk about the poverty of psychoanalysis” (“Psychoanalysis” 221). Gherovici underscores the apparentexclusion of the poor’s access to psychoanalysis and the prejudice involved in the psychoanalytic exclusion of the poor. In Canada and the United States, contemporary psychoanalysis sometimes has the reputation of being only accessible for society’s educated or elite class at an immense financial cost where the privatized treatment is likely to last for many years.
This special session will be focusing on the correlation between psychology, form, and subjectivity in the works of British experimental writer Ann Quin (1936-73), and is titled : 'Fragmented Psychology and Fractured Selfhoods in the Works of Ann Quin'. It is for Modern Language Association (MLA) conference at Toronto, Canada from January 7-10, 2021.
