Spaces of Memory: Between Tangible Relics and Internal Objects in Learning from the Past
Role: Principal Investigator

Spaces of Memory explores the status of the unconscious in representing historical knowledge. The project turns to the history of child psychoanalysis -- specifically Winnicott -- to consider how this analyst's work with patients' drawings, dreams and fantasies informs understandings of historical representation as marked by psychical conflict.
