Schreber Live! Michelle Castaneda “Dipping the Game”

Schreber’s concepts and voices appear, disappear, cajole, incite, and command according to their own individualized logics. In this short play, those logics drive the narrative as characters like So-What Party and Buttocks in the Mirror attempt to resolve the question of they didn’t let me use the scales. The play text is based on Schreber’s language (half-digested by the stomach acids of Susan Lo...

Schreber Live! Emma Lieber “Bellowing Presidents”

How are presidents nominated and named? How do they speak? I will argue that Trump’s language is far more confined than the supposedly psychotic productions of Schreber. In fact, compared to Schreber, Trump’s language is a prison of linguistic confinement. Emma Lieber is a psychoanalyst-in-training and literary scholar whose critical and creative work has appeared in The Point Magazine, New Englan...

Evan Malater: “I Want to Hate… and I Always Will”: The Psychoanalytic Writing of Donald J. Trump

“Our analysis tries to avoid the trap of analyzing Trump in order to follow the precise Trump logic set out in his full-page newspaper advertisement, on its own terms. Since this advertisement contains a rare example of Trump explicitly writing about psychoanalyzing, we abandon the many fruitless attempts to psychoanalyze Trump and instead use it as the basis for examining the conditions by ...

Teresa Mendez & Daniel Buccino: The Sublime Psychology of Baltimore

“Lacan locates the unconscious, the sublime nexus of all our psyches, in Baltimore in the morning. The unconscious, he tells us, is like dawn — that threshold between sleep and waking.
