Second Friday Series – Queer Forms

Queer Forms/Queer Theory/Queer Practice

Ramzi Fawaz, PhD, In Conversation with Reyna Cowan PsyD, LCSW

Friday Oct 13, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

20231013%20SECFRI%20queer%20forms.pngHow do we represent the experience of being a gender and sexual outlaw? Queer Forms argues for the value of shapeshifting as the imaginative transformation of genders and sexualities across time. By taking many shapes of gender and sexual divergence we can grant one another the opportunity to appear and be perceived as an evolving form, not only to claim our visibility, but to be better understood in all our dimensions. How can we engage with these ideas in our consulting room creating space for creative play and fearless expression? How can queer theory link with psychoanalytic ideas? Ramzi Fawaz will guide us in the exploration and dynamics of queer theory, linking his ideas to the values of 1970’s movements for women’s and gay liberation—including consciousness-raising, separatism, and coming out and how these movements were translated into a range of American popular culture forms.

Reading will be sent to registered participants.
