Women in Psychoanalysis and Culture: Desire, Fantasy, and Textuality
Please note that all sessions take place from 11:30am - 1:30pm BST/GMT, 12:30pm-2:30pm CET.
A women-only series with Claudia Celadon, where we read and discuss psychoanalytic and philosophical texts in order to investigate the depiction of women in visual arts and literature.
We explore desire, fantasy and culture in their relation to the representation and understanding of women in the imaginary world of visual arts and literature, and the ambiguous relationship here between appearance and reality.
The series is open for all those identifying as a woman. This is not a clinical or therapeutic group, but CPD certificates will be available. Previous knowledge of psychoanalytic theory is advisable, and pre-reading will be sent to you upon booking.
CLAUDIA CELADON is a psychologist, psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, lecturer, and training facilitator. Originally from Brazil, Claudia has been working clinically in the UK and in Brazil for the past 30 years. She has always been interested in the history of psychoanalysis and how it developed, feminist culture and modern and post-modern philosophy. Claudia is also interested in psychoanalysis as a cultural phenomenon, how it can help inform interpretations of the use of imagery in films and photography, specifically in the depiction of women which arise from their social definition. One of Claudia’s main areas of research is the use of language, both spoken and representational, in the clinical setting and in art and films.
Stillpoint Spaces has had to close all of our physical spaces due to COVID-19 and we have moved all our events online. We have temporarily introduced a “pay what you can” option for non-members for these events. Our facilitators have generously volunteered their time and any proceeds we collect will go towards helping us get through this crisis.Despite being closed, many of our running costs have not changed. We still have to maintain our buildings, maintain our website, and support the costs of running events online. Most important is supporting our staff who are working hard to continue operations during this period. Any contributions you are able to make during this period are both necessary and gratefully received.
Accessibility: At Stillpoint Spaces our aim is to make our events as accessible as possible. However, the building we currently occupy is accessible only by stairwells. Do let us know in advance any issues affecting your accessibility & we will do our very best to accommodate you.
We reserve a limited amount of tickets at a concessional rate for those unable to meet the full cost. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if this applies to you.
