|15 Feb 2011||12:45pm - 2:00pm||CRASSH|
The Reading Group has been meeting under the auspices of CRASSH since 2001 to bring together researchers and teachers from across the disciplines in the arts, humanities, social sciences and elsewhere. The core activity of the Group is a weekly reading group devoted to papers and texts circulated in advance, and this is supplemented by the organization of conferences and by participation in a network of like-minded researchers outside Cambridge. Themes over past years have included terror, visual art and architecture, cinematic fantasy, group psychologies, and migration. Part of the 2008/9 session will be devoted to readings on psychoanalysis and religion. Graduate students, teaching staff and researchers are welcome to join the Group. To do so, contact Andrew Webber (German/MML), John Forrester (History and Philosophy of Science).
Beckett's Endgame will be discussed at this meeting. The remainder of the term will then be devoted to readings from Lacan's Seminar 20, Encore (on Feminine Sexuality, the Limits of Love and Knowledge). Encore is available in reasonably priced paperback editions, in English from Norton and in the original French as a Mass Market paperback from Points. Please see separate event pages for chapters.
All welcome. No registration required.
