The Pregnant Body Through the Looking Glass of Psychoanalysis or, What’s Motherhood Got to Do With It?: A Talk by Rosemary Balsam

Monday, November 9, 6:30 PM, room 101C, 133 W 21st Street.

Free and open to the public

 

From the time of Greek medicine, to the birth of psychoanalysis, the female-sexed body has carried with it some demonstrable interesting distortions. The impact of an originally manifest phallic view shifts in time toward one of pluripotential aspiration into contemporary times. Yale University psychoanalyst and psychiatrist Rosemary Balsam joins BFA Visual & Critical Studies to discuss what this means psychically for traditional biological female roles like motherhood.
