Lacan in America

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

The Canadian Review of American Studies is seeking papers for a special issue on the work of French psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan and extensions of this work. The editors are interested in papers that might address the reception of Lacanian theory and clinical practice in North America. How has Lacan been taken up across the transatlantic between North America and Europe? Further, what is the state of Lacanian theory and psychoanalysis today in relation to mental health? How might Lacanian psychoanalysis speak to the current North American state of affairs? We are broadly interested in papers that explore psychoanalytic approaches at the intersection of aesthetics, poltics, ethics, history, gender studies or clinical work.

Seeking two additional papers for a two panel series at ANZSANA 2019 (Austin, Texas, February 6-8) relating the history and culture of Australia and New Zealand to settler colonialism as a transnational phenomenon. We are particularly interested in papers that:

 

• Engage in comparative work that relates the history and culture of Australia and/or New Zealand to that of the US

• Consider how Australia as a case study has shaped contemporary transnational understandings of settler colonialism as a structure of power. 

• Consider the relationship between critiques of settler colonialism and critiques of the patriarchy, especially vis-a-vis contemporary Indigenous feminist approaches.
