This half-day symposium is the 9th annual collaboration between NYU’s Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality and the journal Studies in Gender and Sexuality. The question of the non-human is a vital one for psychoanalysis, but in the main remains a path not taken. There is, meanwhile, a growing scholarly literature, and across multiple fields, that explores the post- and non-human: e.g., critical animal studies, new materialisms, object-oriented ontology, post-colonial studies, affect studies, and queer of color critique. The broad goal of this year’s forum is to see what happens when clinicians, cultural theorists, and arts practitioners talk together about and beyond the limits of the human, through such keywords as animals, objects, and affects. Through an explicit foregrounding of the “place of practice,” panelists will also attend to questions of institutional location (e.g., classroom, cubicle, consulting room, museum or gallery, street corner) as well as histories of power. How does where we think, write, work, and with whom (or what) shape critical practices, conceptual possibilities, horizons of the sayable and sensible.
