TICP Extension Program Spring 2015: There is no such thing as a transsexual

DATES: May 2, 16, 30, June 2, 2015
TIMES: 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
In echoing Winnicott’s famous sentence, “there is no such thing as a baby” the course will present the idea that “there is no such thing as a transsexual.” To speak of the transsexual is to confront a riot of meaning that belongs to the body that brings it forth and agonizes it. In this course gender identity will be explored through various registers: as desire for the other and for identity, as an imaginary and symbolic link to the other, as a thinking apparatus, as a representation of a phantasy object, and as an attempt at representation and an enactment of sexual difference. We will explore the ways in which the analytic ethos invites the patient to learn to make something from sexual difference.
Readings: Gozlan, O. (2014). Transsexuality and the Art of Transitioning: A Lacanian Approach, Routledge. Selected chapters will be available upon request.
FEE: $100.00 ($50 for students)
