LACAN BETWEEN GIDE AND GENET: DICHTUNG AND WAHRHEIT, BUT OTHERWISE, Visiting Speaker
The “othering” process of literary autobiography may generate a certain truth, yet it must pass through fantasy, whose structure, as Genet showed Lacan, is that it should not seem too true. We will examine the place of Gide’s autobiographically based works in Lacan’s Écrits, not only in “The Youth of Gide” but also near the end of “The Instance of the Letter in the Unconscious.”
MEETING PLACE: The School of Visual Arts, 136 West 21st Street(between 6th and 7th Avenues), New York City. Please ask at the front desk for the room number
ATTENDANCE FEE: Attendance is free for all members of Après-Coup as well as for the faculty and students of the School of Visual Arts.
Attendance for others is $30; for students with ID, $10.
