[POSTPONED] Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis & Culture: Julian Parks Lecture | Rebecca Comay, “Freud sets a deadline: the Wolfman and interminable analysis”
March 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO ILLNESS. A new date will be announced soon.
The lecture and seminar form part of a larger project called Deadlines, on the strange temporality of the deadline — political, theological, psychoanalytic, literary, legal, biological, environmental and other sorts. The lecture discusses the question of time in Freud’s famous “Wolf Man” case. “Deadlines – Literally,” expands to four different approaches, beginning with a shift from temporal deadlines to material deadlines as demarcations that served to redouble physical enclosure with symbolic terror, in the prisoner-of-war camps of the American Civil War, and later considering Dr. Faustus in Marlowe’s and Mann’s different versions.
Rebecca Comay is Professor of Philosophy and Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto.
