Case Studies: An Introduction

Lacan Circle Seminar





Case Studies: An Introduction


Led by Alison Ravenscroft


Since Freud, the case study has been pivotal in the transmission of
psychoanalysis. In this seminar we will read a range of case studies,
drawing firstly on classic instances from Freud and Lacan.


Then we will turn to considerations of two quite different moments
of psychoanalytic transmission via the study of a case:
these are testimonies of the pass; and the presentation of a case
made by an analyst to their supervisor.


How is the “case” represented in these different moments of transmission?
How is the case made, how is it written and read?
How is the case spoken and heard?
What is present of the body in this re-presentation?


That is, what is transmitted in the case study?


This nine seminar series will be available in-person only
at the Kathleen Syme Centre in Carlton, Melbourne
