WRITING AND RESISTANCE

New Formations

We are pleased to announce the publication of New Formations Issue 83: ‘Writing and Resistance’
For online details see http://www.lwbooks.co.uk/journals/newformations/issue/nf83.html

[Please note that the deadline for the next general issue of New Formations is May 31st 2015. For  contributors guidelines see http://www.lwbooks.co.uk/journals/newformations/contributors.htm]

Details for this issue:
This issue of New Formations presents a range of exciting new work which spans and connects the fields of cultural studies, literary theory and radical political philosophy. Two contributors are concerned with the specificities of contemporary sexual politics. Three others address the relationships between writing, disclosure and interpretation. A further two texts offer radical philosophical interpretations of emergent political currents in Greece, Spain, Turkey and beyond. While there is no single theme, all the contributions share a concern to bring the most sophisticated theoretical tools available to bear upon the analysis of a range of urgent and emergent political questions. This continues to be the overriding purpose of New Formations: to explore the intersections between culture, theory and politics in order to understand the changing nature of each in the twenty-first century.

‘A Dangerous Method’

BRUNO BOSTEELS ON ‘MARX AND FREUD IN LATIN AMERICA’

Bruno Bosteels on Marx and Freud in Latin America

Thursday, November 8, 2012

Combining political philosophy, art history, and literary criticism, Bruno Bosteels’s new book, Marx and Freud in Latin America, presents a sharp and highly original analysis of the continuing influence of Marxism and psychoanalysis on the continent of Latin America. Presenting ten case studies, Bosteels eloquently illustrates how art and literature have matched even the most searing of militant tracts in terms of creating radical modes of understanding subjectivity within regions that have undergone decades of political and social upheaval. Demonstrating how these cultural forms rupture binaries such as object/subject, criticism/theory, and literature/philosophy, Bosteels turns a critical eye on works ranging from detective pulp novels in Mexico to experimental film in Cuba, advancing a renewed interdisciplinary method of inquiry.

Bosteels, in conversation with Professor Federico Finchelstein, will discuss his new work, and the untimely relevance of two radical thinkers alien to the continent who inspired its activists and artists alike.

This event is sponsored by The Janey Program in Latin American Studies at the New School for Social Research and Verso Books.

ANTHROPOLIGICAL MATERIALISM AND MATERIALISM OF ENCOUNTER: REINTERPRETING OUR PRESENT IN THE WAKE OF WALTER BENJAMIN AND LOUIS ALTHUSSER

Call for Participation

German-French summer school, organised by the DFH Saarbrücken 2012

Anthropological Materialism and Materialism of Encounter: Reinterpreting our Present in the Wake of Walter Benjamin and Louis Althusser

A Cooperation of the University of Potsdam and the University Paris-Sorbonne (ParisIV)

Location: University of Potsdam, Institute of Philosophy, Am Neuen Palais 10 (Building 9, Room 1.14), 144469 Potsdam

Date: July 16. – 20. 2012

This cross-cultural and interdisciplinary summer school aims to foster an innovative dialog between the philosophies of Walter Benjamin (1892-1940) and Louis Althusser (1918-1990). After the self-confident liberalism of the 1980s and 90s proclaimed the post-histoire and the end of all utopias, it is today all the more necessary to debate the real frontiers of the global social and political order from a non-dogmatic and unorthodox materialist point of view. To approximate such a materialist perspective, this summer school seeks to interrogate and compare Walter Benjamin’s “anthropological materialism” and Louis Althusser’s “materialism of encounter”. We cordially invite young academics – primarily graduate and Ph.D. students from France and Germany– to propose their research projects or to act as respondents to plenary lectures from a series of renowned Althusser and Benjamin scholars from the fields of philosophy, philology, psychoanalysis, art history, and political theory.

Organisation:

Prof. Hans-Peter Krüger (Potsdam)
Prof. Gérard Raulet (Paris)
Dr. Marc Berdet (Paris/Potsdam)

'A Dangerous Method'

THE FREUD EXPOSURE

Our youngest son, Gregory Rikowski, has recently been taking a very lively and critical interest in Psychology, Psychoanalysis and the work of Sigmund Freud and of the Freud family in general.

Leading on from this, he wrote an article about it all, entitled ‘Freudian Crisis in the Modern Era’, which is now on our ‘The Flow of Ideas’ website, see: http://www.flowideas.co.uk/print.php?page=402&slink=yes.

Continuing with this theme, Ruth and I have recently been to see the newly released film: ‘A Dangerous Method’, which focuses on Jung and Freud (although more on the former). The film is directed by David Cronenberg and stars Keira Knightley, as mentally tormented Sabina Spielrein, a Jewish Russian-born patient of Jung’s; Michael Fassbender as Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, and Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud.

Money Menace

NEW FORMATIONS 72: PSYCHOANALYSIS AND MONEY

Out now: new formations 72 Psychoanalysis and money
Guest editor: David Bennett

An international cast of psychoanalysts, cultural theorists, philosophers and critics explore aspects of the nexus between psychoanalysis, money and economics in the aftermath of the latest global financial crisis. Asking not only what psychoanalysis can tell us about financial crashes, but also what crashes may reveal about psychoanalysis, it stages a confrontation between two disciplines that have been mutually indifferent and mutually opaque for much of the past 100 years.

For more information on the current issue

David Bennett on economics and psychoanalysis
Bruce Fink on analysand and analyst in the global economy
Karl Figlio on greed and reparation in masculine phantasy
Viktor Mazin on Russia, the ruble, the dollar and psychoanalysis
Geoff Boucher and Matthew Sharpe on financial crisis, social pathologies and perversion
Paul Crosthwaite on expenditure, the death drive, and contemporary art
Stephen Frosh on psychoanalysis, anti-Semitism and the miser
Tan Waelchli on authority, regulation of standards, and the law of the father
Jean-Joseph Goux on psychoanalysis and the political economy
Campbell Jones on the market and subjectivity
Daniel Ross on Bernard Stiegler’s ‘pharmacology of desire’
Bernard Stiegler on drive-based capitalism and libidinal dis-economy

Situationism

Self Divided

SELF, PSYCHOANALYIS AND SOCIETY IN THE 21ST CENTURY

RC36 Symposium
Gothenburg, Sweden
July 10, 2010

The relationship of self and society has intrigued philosophers, psychoanalysts, and sociologists for over a century. In the early part of the last century, as economic conditions fostered alienation, malaise and despair, the neo-Marxist Frankfurt School, among the first scholars influence by both the Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts, as well as Freudian psychology, began to investigate and theorize the social psychological factors that disposed certain people to Fascism. At about the same time, in the US, scholars such as Cooley, James and above all GH Mead began to think about socialization and the formation of self. These early perspectives played a major role in the rise of symbolic interactionism.

These theories have seen a number of developments and transformations. While the work of Reich, Fromm, Adorno and Horkhiemer was groundbreaking, Marcuse, Habermas and Jessica Benjamin have added to that tradition. Surely the work of Althusser, Lacan and Foucault has added a number of other concerns and dimensions.

For the past few years, a number of scholars have gathered together before the American Sociological Association meetings to discuss the vagaries of contemporary selfhood, largely, but not exclusively from a psychoanalytical perspective. This year, given the many European and International scholars that will be attending the ISA, we decided to move our venue to Gothenburg, Sweden, and schedule our meeting the day before ISA meets. The meeting will be sponsored by RC36 Alienation Theory and Research.

We would like to invite all interested scholars to join us in what have been among the most stimulating meetings. Please send an abstract of about 200-250 words to Lauren Langman, Llang944@aol.com and Lynne Chancer, lchancer@hunter.cuny.edu. Please send by April 25, 2010.
