Trans: Gender in Free Fall – November 18

Thursday, November 18, 2010 at 8:00 PM


Trans genders may be uncommon, but gender variance itself is not rare. Indeed, whatever conditions create gender as an either/or binary, also create its many complications and multipliers. By understanding the psychic action of trans, the exception, we can uncover the workings of binary gender, the rule.

To experience gender as permanently unsettled, to deploy gender categories as consciously provisional, to know as fact that gender is socially constructed, and to live it as personally assembled, this is something new under the sun.

Virginia Goldner, Ph.D. is the Founding Editor of the journal Studies in Gender and Sexuality, and an Associate Editor of Psychoanalytic Dialogues. She is on the faculty of the NYU Post-Doctoral Program in Psychoanalysis, and was, for two terms, on the Board of Directors of the International Association for Relational Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. She is the co-Editor of two books, Gender in Psychoanalytic Space with Muriel Dimen (Other Press; 2002), and Predatory Priests, Silenced Victims, with Mary Gail Frawley O’Dea (Routledge; 2007). She has received awards for her Distinguished Contributions to psychoanalysis by Division 39 of the APA (2007), and to family therapy by the American Family Therapy Academy (1996). She is the author of numerous journal articles and book chapters, and is completing work on a collection of her major papers. Dr. Goldner is in private practice in New York City.
