Influential psychoanalyst Christopher Bollas is scholar-in-residence at the Townsend Center the first week of November 2016. This seminar discusses work on unconscious perception of objects and on fractured unconsciousness.
Graduate Seminars are four-week graduate courses that reach across disciplines. They are led by distinguished scholars and artists in residence who also deliver lectures and take part in public events on campus. In some cases these seminars will be coordinated with emerging campus programs, such as Religious Studies, or to the Townsend Center Initiatives, which now include Thinking the Self; Music & Sound; Human Rights; and Global Urban Humanities.
