Gohar Homayounpour - Tell Me A Story: Shahrzad “in analysis” in contemporary Persia.

In this episode we will dive with Gohar Homayounpour into the tales of One Thousand and One Nights to bring a new articulation to the female Oedipus complex in contemporary Persia, allowing for the emergence of new possibilities of loving. Through a psychoanalytic textual analysis of the Nights, the author uncovers various archetypes of women that have been extinct from a more mainstream discourse, not only in Iran. The archetypes of Persian women populating Shahrazad’s tales night after night have been lost as sources of female identifications. The paper sets out to tell a story, and within it wishes to re-find a whole and integrated Shahrazad as an object of female identifications.

Gohar Homayounpour is an author and psychoanalyst and member of  the International Psychoanalytic Association, American Psychoanalytic Association, the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, and the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis. She is the Training and Supervising psychoanalyst of the Freudian Group of Tehran, where she is also founder and former director. She has published various psychoanalytic articles and her book, Doing Psychoanalysis in Tehran, published by MIT Press in August 2012, won the Gradiva award and has been translated into French, German, Italian, and Turkish.

Rosine Perelberg - Murdered Father, Dead Father: Revisiting the Oedipus Complex.

Pithiviers internment camp
Image from the Holocaust Museum, Pithiviers internment camp in 1941.
In 1942 all the inmates were deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau.

In this podcast Rosine Perelberg offers some reflections derived from her paper “Murdered Father, Dead Father: Revisiting the Oedipus Complex”, published in the International Journal of Psychoanalysis (in 2009), as well as from the last chapter of her book of the same title (in 2016). Rosine Perelberg suggests that in the Shoah one is confronted with the abolition of the law of the dead father. This refers to the murder of the dead father and the re-establishing of the tyranny of the narcissistic father. Based on her considerable knowledge of the literature on antisemitism, her background in history and social anthropology, as well as her own psychoanalytic writings, Rosine Perelberg advances her thoughts about antisemitism across the ages as well as in current times.

Rosine Jozef Perelberg is a Fellow, Training Analyst, and President of the British Psychoanalytical Society, Visiting Professor in the Psychoanalysis Unit at University College London, and Corresponding Member of the Paris Psychoanalytical Society. She was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she completed her BSc in Humanities and undertook an MSc in Social Anthropology, before her PhD in Social Anthropology at the London School of Economics. She has written and edited 12 books.  Psychic Bisexuality was awarded the 2019 American Board & Academy of Psychoanalysis Book Prize for Best Edited Book. In 1993 she was co-winner of the Cesare Sacerdoti Prize at the IPA Congress in Buenos Aires. In 2006 she was named one of the 10 Women of the Year by the Brazilian National Council of Women.

Fakhry Davids and Virginia De Micco - Racism and Violence in Pandemic Times.

William Kentridge, North Pole Map, 2003

 

Racism and violence in pandemic times: a psychoanalytical point of view.
A conversation between Fakhry Davids and Virginia De Micco

In this episode Fakhry Davids and Virginia De Micco begin with a reflection on the “Black Lives Matter” movement, suggesting a continuity between the inequalities of the past and those involved in societal racism today. They consider how such inequalities are internalized, suggesting that it results in one’s in-group identity being structured as an us-them link with an out-group, in which projective processes are heavily involved. Does the increased sense of vulnerability during times of pandemic produce greater pressure to project fear, danger, or ‘evil’ into the racial others – just at a time when their greater vulnerability is more evident?

Fakhry Davids, is a Training and Supervising Analyst of British Society, a member of the International Research Group Geographies of Psychoanalysis, a Board Member of PCCA (Partners in Confronting Collective Atrocities, www.p-cca.org) and Member of the Holmes Commission for Racial Equality, American Psychoanalytic Association.

He directed for 8 years the «Revue Française de Psychanalyse» and was for 4 years the President of the Paris Psychoanalytical Society. He has collected a long experience as psychoanalyst in a day hospital for young children, some of whom was autistic. His interest in the death drive comes to him both from the experience of the psychic conflictuality and from his deepening of the specifically autistic problematic, in line with the contributions of Tustin and of Meltzer. He has also worked with Benno Rosenberg, conceiving drive fusion and defusion in their movements in neurosis, in borderline states as well as in psychosomatic states where the somato-psychic balance is disturbed.

TalksOnPsychoanalysis_ep3.jpg

In today’s episode Fred Bush will speak about his new paper: Self-Criticism as a Lifeline.  Thanks to his clinical vignettes and to his sharp description of the mechanisms that rule the need for self criticism, he will lead us to discover a kind of patient that is different from the one that generally manifest a sense of guilt and melancholia.
