April 15, Friday
4:45 to 7:30 pm

Charles Levin, Canadian Institute of Psycho-analysis; Editor-in-chief, Revue Canadienne de Psychanalyse/Canadian Journal of Psychoanalysis

This forum brings together clinicians, legal theorists, scholars of gender and sexuality studies, and policy practitioners to discuss the multiple ways “sexual danger” is being discussed, administered, and policed in a variety of settings: from campus debates over sexual assault and affirmative consent to conflicts roiling psychoanalytic institutes over sexual boundary violations between analysts and patients.

This forum is the 7th annual collaboration between CSGS and the journal Studies in Gender and Sexuality. As with the previous such events, this year’s was co-curated by Ann Pellegrini for CSGS and Muriel Dimen for SGS. Muriel Dimen’s ground-breaking writings on sexual boundary violations in the analytic space specifically inspired this year’s focus. But a more general goal of these annual gatherings is to spark on-going conversation and exchange between clinicians and cultural theorists of gender and sexuality to see how we might learn from each other and transform the institutional spaces we occupy.

That spark continues, and so does Muriel Dimen’s. We dedicate this day of conversation to her memory.
