Details

We are delighted to be hosting this monthly reading group for LGBTQIA+ women and gender non-binary people to explore relevant psychodynamic and psychoanalytical literature together. Each month the group will read two papers: one classically psychoanalytical, and one from a more contemporary queer psychodynamic or psychoanalytical perspective.

The group will start with a consideration of how the typically phallocentric language in Freud’s theory of psychosexual development can be reimagined from a queer female perspective.

These sessions are open to all women and non-binary people identifying as LGBTQIA+. Some prior knowledge of psychodynamic and/or psychoanalytic concepts would be helpful, but not required.

The sessions will be peer-led and attendees are encouraged to suggest topics and writing they would like to explore, especially from less-often heard perspectives (e.g. bisexual women, trans women, LGBTQI+ women and non-binary people of colour). Stillpoint Spaces member Harriet Mossop will be facilitating the group.
