From Psychoanalytic Bisexuality to Bisexual Psychoanalysis: Desiring in the Real

From Psychoanalytic Bisexuality to Bisexual Psychoanalysis: Desiring in the Real Public Talk by Esther Rapoport, Clinical Psychologist                                                                                   Bisexuality is one of the foundational concepts of Freud’s psychoanalytic theory - but unlike his other foundational concepts related to gender and sexuality, and despite the increasing visibility of bisexual lifestyles in contemporary society, it has received little critical attention within the psychoanalytic community. From Psychoanalytic Bisexuality to Bisexual Psychoanalysis: Desiring in the Real (Routledge, June 2019) is the first book to assess bisexuality through a range of both psychoanalytic and critical (feminist/queer) perspectives.

  In her talk, Esther will critique the logical errors inherent to, and the ideological underpinnings of, the Freudian concept of bisexuality, and outline the development (or, rather, lack thereof) of this concept in post-Freudian psychoanalysis. She will then offer some alternative ways to conceptualize bisexuality through the lenses of contemporary psychoanalytic (namely, Lacanian, Winnicottian and Relational) theories. A case vignette will be used to explore the issue of widespread countertransference responses in the clinical setting, as well as to comment on the social pressures facing bisexuals of various genders, and the resultant psychological effects.      Dinner provided - please email nroubini@mtholyoke in advance if you have any special dietary needs.
