October 25, 2017 – Carla Freccero, “Queer/Animal/Theory: Psychoanalysis & Subjectivity”

Psychoanalysis is queer insofar as it does not presume a model of sexuality & gender from which to extrapolate a normative outcome. Likewise, psychoanalysis does not presume “the human” as the starting point for analyzing how adult human subjectivity is achieved. How might we describe a non-anthropocentric subjectivity in psychoanalytic & queer theoretical terms?

Carla Freccero is Distinguished Professor of Literature and History of Consciousness, and Professor of Feminist Studies, at UC Santa Cruz.
