Psychoanalysis, Gender, and Literature

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research

Psychoanalysis, Gender, and Literature: an Introduction to Hélène Cixous How can psychoanalysis be used to understand literature—not as an object of study, but as a mode of experiencing life through reading and writing?

Pornography: Aesthetics, Politics, and Pleasure

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

Pornography is one of humanity’s oldest, and most enduring artifacts. Variously celebrated and demonized, it has decorated sumptuous palaces and been furtively sold under pain of arrest. In the modern United States, it is kept studiously out of sight, and yet is simultaneously omnipresent and accessible in its most explicit forms with a simple click of the mouse. What is pornography? What does it do? Why do we treat it so inconsistently? Why is...

Julia Kristeva: Feminism, Abjection, and Theory

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

Emigrating from the European periphery to its intellectual center, Julia Kristeva exploded like a bomb onto the insular world of French theory. Her first book, Revolution in Poetic Language, put forth a wholly new understanding of human communication—insisting on the non-linguistic rhythmic dimension that undergirds all language. Her emphasis on the body in turn centered the formative significance of the maternal, which, she argues, is repressed...

Transgender Marxism: an Introduction

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

In recent years, there has been unprecedented growth in the visibility and sheer number of people who identify with a gender other than the one they were assigned at birth. Trans life and, with it, a whole world of trans culture—aesthetics, style, taste—has broken from the margins into the mainstream. This new generation of “gender subversives” is, at the same time, inordinately active in left-wing politics and radical movements, vigorously...

What is Conservatism?

Brooklyn Institute for Social Research @ Online Classroom

While contemporary political discourse is often characterized by heated discussions of liberalism or fascism, socialism or “populism”, the broad category of “conservative” thought seems to take a back seat. This despite its enduring relevance not only for understanding political history and the history of political thought, but also as an analytical tool today. What exactly is conservatism? How can we understand a category so capacious as...
