Draft Syllabus for "The Media & Technologies of Psychoanalysis"

A month or two back I mentioned that I would be teaching a course on the media & technologies of psychoanalysis -- that is, the role of instruments, techniques, technologies,  notations, and diagrams in constituting the psyche and psychoanalytic knowledge. This course will be taught in the MA "Psychoanlytische Kulturwissenschaft" program co-administered by the Humboldt University of Beriln and the Berlin Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. Participants will be include practicing psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, social workers, and psychologists.

 

I have attached a first, very rough draft of the course syllabus below and also attached it as a PDF (to the right). It still has typos but I am eager to solicit feedback now before I'm too much farther along with the course plan. I am especially seeking suggestions for additional texts, in-class exercises, software, films, installations, games, etc, that can be used to explore the role of media, technologies, and notations in shaping (knowledge of) subjectivity.

 

I strongly downloading the attached PDF if you are at all interested in taking a look. Its formatting is much better. The final syllabus and about 80% of the readings will be in German. Suggestions for additional texts in English or in German are equally welcome.

 

The Media and Technologies of Psychoanalysis

Bernard Dionysius Geoghegan

 

Rough Draft. Please excuse initial typos, oversights, etc.

 

Course Description: Psychoanalysis is defined in part by its development of scientific and technological methods for objectifying aspects of an “internal” psyche in the “external” media of discourse, imagery, writing, and intersubjective transactions. Does this suggest that psychoanalytic knowledge—and perhaps the mind for itself—might in some way be constituted by the very apparatus of inscriptions, mediation, and displacements charged with faithfully documenting its existence?

 

Drawing on recent research in literary theory, philosophy, media studies, actor-network theory, the history of science, and the history of technology, this course will provide participants with an introduction to role of media and technologies in constituting psychoanalytical knowledge and producing psychoanalytical subjects. This course will notfurnish psychoanalytic interpretations of media and technology; rather, it will investigate how shifts in media, technology and techniques refashion psychoanalytical knowledge of the self and others. Theorists and historians to be read include Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, Gregory Bateson, Jacques Derrida, Friedrich Kittler, Bruno Latour, and Avital Ronnell.

 

Participants in the course with practical experience in psychoanalysis, psychiatry, social work, psychology, and related fields are strongly encouraged to draw on their professional experience in class presentations and discussions.

 

Learning Goals:Through readings will acquire a basic familiarity with theoretical debates surrounding the medial turn in psychoanalysis, as exemplified by scholars such as Jacques Derrida, Avital Ronnell, and Friedrich Kittler. Lectures will furnish students with a familiarity in recent debates in science and technology studies concerning the social, material, and instrumental fashioning of scientific knowledge and scientific networks. Students with practical experience in psychoanalysis, psychiatry, and related fields will be encouraged to reflect on the notational methods that construct their own professional practices. Weekly readings and writing assignments, as well as the final paper, will develop students’ critical vocabulary and their writing skills. An in-class presentation will provide students with an occasion to cultivate and develop oral, creative, or performative skills that reinforce their analytical and critical skills.

 

Class Ethic:See attached statement by John Cage.

 

Schedule: Class meets twice a week—once for lectures and discussion, once for screening. Classes with large enrollments may have an additional discussion section.

 

Evaluation

Writing Assignments: 30% of final grade

Class Presentation: 30% of final grade

Final Project: 40% of final grade

 

 

Writing Assignments:During the course of the quarter students must submit at least eight short critical responses (around 300 words) to the class readings on the course website. You have the option of freely writing a response on a theme of your own choice or, alternately, responding to the weekly reading response prompt. These responses, which must be posted at least twelve hours before class meets, should select one aspect of the readings for critical elaboration or evaluation. Students are encouraged to engage one another in dialogue through responses.

 

Class Presentation:This project is equal parts imaginative and analytical. Each week students (alone or in groups) will prepare a fifteen to twenty minute presentations that provides an in-depth examination of discursive, medial, technical, technological, and/or notational phenomena under analysis in this week’s readings. The aim of this presentation is get to get a slightly broader or more detailed understanding of the period and phenomena under consideration. These presentations may be factual, analytical, creative, dramatic, or artistic in nature. Possible sources for this presentation include: historical newspapers, scientific manuals, historical texts in sociology, engineering patents, histories of technology, literature and the arts, or broadcasts. The use of visual and aural material is strongly encouraged.

 

For example, in the week of readings concerning the telephone, presenters' might choose to present and analyze the telephone book as a social and cultural form, an historical radio plays that pivots around the new forms of intersubjectivity and anxiety facilitated by telecommunications, or an analysis of psychoanalytic discussions of the telephone. Or to consider another example: The reading of Freud’s essay on the mystic writing pad could be supplemented with a broader examination of how late 19th and early 20th century toys and amusements stimulated and intersected with theories of mind.

 

Presentations should demonstrate familiarity with the week's readings but they need not exhaustively summarize or recapitulate class reading materials.

 

Final Project:At the end of the semester each student is required to prepare an in-depth and original examination of the medial, technical, and/or notational construction of psychic phenomena. This examination may take a variety of forms, including but not limited to: a paper of approximately 1800 words (approximately 9 pages double-spaced, size 12 times new Roman font, with standard margins), or an aural or video analysis of a noteworthy document form the history of psychoanalysis and psychiatry, or an art installation accompanied by an analytical statement.

 

Students with professional experience relevant to the course are welcome to bring materials from their practice into this project, so long as this does not jeopardize confidentiality, privacy, or professional norms.

 

All final projects must be outlined in a one-page proposal and submitted to the professor for feedback no later than penultimate class session. These projects will be presented in class at our last class session.

 

Attendance: Students must attend all class sessions (lectures, screenings, and discussions inclusive) and participate regularly in class discussions. Two or more unexcused absences will lead to a lowered grade. Four or more unexcused absences are grounds for failure.

 

Academic Honesty: Cheating and plagiarism are grounds for failing the course. If you are uncertain about what constitutes cheating or plagiarism, please the UCI Academic Senate Policy on Academic Honesty online.

 

Students with Disabilities: The professor is committed to providing all students with equal opportunities to participate and succeed in the course. To facilitate that goal, please contact the professor the first week of course if you require accommodations or assistance in connection with a disability.

 

Sexual Harassment: Sexual harassment will not be tolerated from any member of this course. If you feel you have been sexually harassed please contact the professor, the chair of the department, or the dean’s office.

We will examine a selection of these materials in-class with the goal of recognizing the distinct styles of analysis, understanding, and knowledge produced by varied notational styles.
