Other Women: a psychodynamic and psychoanalytic group for queer women
12-11-2019 - 11-02-2020
Stillpoint Spaces London
London, EC1R 0AA
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.
(6 monthly sessions 7-8:30pm)
To get the most out of this reading group it is advised that you attend all sessions (or as many as possible).
This group is limited to 8 attendees so please do book your space early to avoid disappointment.
Light refreshments will be served.
CPD certificates available on request.
