>and limits of psychoanalytic reason in the history of reason,
>and deconstruction in particular. Central questions include: what is the
>specificity of psychoanalytic knowledge and the psychoanalytic
>method? What is the relationship of psychoanalysis to other
>established and emerging disciplines and contemporary deployments of
>categories such as race, class, and power?
>Paper topics may include but are not limited to:
>The relationship of psychoanalysis to traditional disciplines such as
>philosophy, cultural studies, linguistics, and theology, as well as
>emerging fields such as critical race studies, visual studies,
