Psychoanalytic Studies


Psychoanalytic Studies is a vibrant interdisciplinary field that has grown dramatically over the past 30 years, connecting psychoanalytic theories and techniques of the unconscious and the dynamic affective dimension of human subjectivity to fields as diverse as film theory, cultural studies, aesthetics, literary criticism, ecology, gender studies, social and political theory, and philosophy. As well as providing psychoanalytical insights into these domains, allowing fresh and creative perspectives, psychoanalytic studies opens up psychoanalysis to a broader world, exploring these wider social impacts on the psyche and on psychoanalysis itself. Below are the websites for the courses taught by Dr Joseph Dodd, PhD at the Prague Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies (PCPS), at the Charles University's CIEE Study Centre, the University of New York in Prague, and the Anglo-American University.
