Friday, April 9, 2021
and Saturday, April 10, 2010
Live via Zoom
Co-sponsored by the Contemporary Freudian Society, the International Psychoanalytical Association, and the American Psychoanalytic Association
Claudia Rankine, MacArthur Fellow and award-winning poet, will offer a Friday keynote inspired by her recent book, Just Us: An American Conversation. She will be joined by San Francisco analyst, Francisco Gonzalez. Saturday will be a day of presentations and study on the intersectionality of our current world crises and gender and sexuality.
Two panels of forward-thinking psychoanalysts, along with break-out groups for self-study will offer the enriching opportunity to think, synthesize and reflect on issues concerning race, class, health and politics and the place of gender and sexuality.
This conference is open to members of the mental health community, as well as anyone interested in exploring the psychological impact of the pandemic on social issues embedded in our global fabric.
