Carla Freccero, “Queer/Animal/Theory: Psychoanalysis & Subjectivity”

October 25, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm  |  Stevenson Fireside Lounge


Psychoanalysis is queer insofar as it does not presume a model of sexuality & gender from which to extrapolate a normative outcome. Likewise, psychoanalysis does not presume “the human” as the starting point for analyzing how adult human subjectivity is achieved. How might we describe a non-anthropocentric subjectivity in psychoanalytic & queer theoretical terms?

Carla Freccero is Distinguished Professor of Literature and History of Consciousness, and Professor of Feminist Studies, at UC Santa Cruz.

The Center for Cultural Studies hosts a weekly Wednesday colloquium featuring work by faculty and visitors. The sessions consist of a 40-45 minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, with presentations beginning at 12:15 PM. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunches; the Center provides coffee, tea, and cookies.

All Center for Cultural Studies events are free and open to the public. Staff assistance is provided by the Institute for Humanities Research.
