9:30 am - 5 pm
The international conference, Modernism, Psychoanalysis and the Embodied Mind, will engage an interdisciplinary network of scholars and practitioners who bring the radical insights of modernist literature, as well as performance and the visual arts, into dialogue with clinical practice in psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, psychiatry, neuropsychology, and the mental healthcare offered at the end of life. Presentations will focus on the resources modernism offers for creatively understanding the experiences of body and mind that form the core material of the psychoanalytic encounter, but are poorly served by realist models of self.
