Event description
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BABY’S HEAD: Between Victim and Victimizer

About this Event

After speaking at a German psychoanalytic conference meant to address the impact of the Holocaust upon Jews and Germans in the 21st century, the weekend began and ended with little or no meaningful dialogue. Unctuous confessionals, sanctimonious denial, finger pointing and hurt ensued instead. How similar this felt to exchanges I have experienced when esteemed and “well meaning” white psychoanalysts, including myself, try and fail to engage in conversation about racism with black professionals. It is precisely such " interactions," those between victims and perpetrators that this talk attempts to explore, particularly the ways in which the liminal space of the creative imagination can work to prevent, or to prepare space in which dialogue may begin.

Emily Kuriloff, Psy.D is Director of Clinical Education, and a Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at the William Alanson White Institute in New York. She is former Book Review Editor, and is on the Editorial board of the Journal, Contemporary Psychoanalysis, and is published in The Psychoanalytic Quarterly, Psychoanalytic Psychology, and Psychoanalytic Perspectives, among other Journals. Her book, Contemporary Psychoanalysis and The Legacy of the Third Reich, explores how the trauma of the Shoah transformed the development of psychoanalysis at its apex and beyond, and was published by Routledge in 2014. A volume of essays, written by psychoanalysts, exploring the impact of return to one’s birthplace after exile or immigration is forthcoming. The book will be edited by Dr. Kuriloff and Dr. Evelyn Hartman, and published by Routledge next year.

Donna M. Orange, Ph.D, Psy.D is educated in philosophy, clinical psychology and psychoanalysis, Donna Orange teaches at NYU Postdoctoral Program and IPSS (Institute for the Psychoanalytic Study of Subjectivity, New York). Recent books are Thinking for Clinicians (2010), The Suffering Stranger: Hermeneutics for Everyday Clinical Practice (2011), Nourishing the Inner Life of Clinicians and Humanitarians (2016) and Climate Crisis, Psychoanalysis, and Radical Ethics (2017), and Learning to Hear: Psychoanalysis, History, and Radical Ethics (2019, in press).
