In this course, we will be looking at (primarily modernist) short stories and some excerpts from longer works of fiction in relation to canonical psychoanalytic ideas and major movements in the field of critical and literary theory. Broad in scope but hopefully not shallow in content, the course will offer a look at the various ways literature has been read from psychoanalytic perspectives. The course offers an introduction not only to various approaches to thinking psychoanalytically about literature but will also explore how literature may help clinicians think about our own theories of the mind and how we conceptualize what we encounter in our clinical work.

Educational Objectives:  At the conclusion of this program participants will be able to:
1. Analyze and discuss literary passages using basic techniques of interpretation from psychoanalytic literary theory 
2. Identify, apply and compare various psychoanalytic theoretical concepts as they apply to literary passages
3. Demonstrate a basic understanding of how psychoanalytic modes of interpreting literature can enrich psychoanalytic theory and clinical practice.
