I’ve hardly engaged with Lacan directly (yet) but I’m very interested in this, from the Simpson Center’s website:
A discussion with Nancy Gillespie on Jacques Lacan’s Seminar X “Anxiety” and her work on the gothic and feminist experimental poetics. A dinner out will follow.
Gillespie completed her PhD from the University of Sussex in the UK with a thesis on “The Ecstatic Woman & the Grotesque: A New Lacanian Subject in the work of Djuna Barnes & Mina Loy.” She is working on two books: a revision of her thesis and an edited collection, entitled “Gothic Remains: Symptoms of the Modern” for Manchester University Press. Her academic endeavors shift between the discourses of Lacanian psychoanalysis and feminist, experimental poetics. She is an information analyst with Eric Laurent and a member of the Vancouver Lacan Salon and the editorial team of Hurly-Burly: The International Lacanian Journal of Psychoanalysis.
