Playing with Theory: Fanon and the Phobogenic Object

Course Number: 68355

Course Description

This weekend intensive .5 credit course will explore Franz Fanon's work, Black Skin/White Masks, as well as the work of other psychoanalytic and psychodynamic practitioners, and the accompanying theoretical framework he describes phobogenesis-fear of the black body, and its utility as a framework for understanding the traumatic processes of racial dehumanization. This intensive weekend course (which will run for one weekend since it is a .5 class) will engage his work through a clinical/direct practice lens, as well as considering its application when examining systemic and organizational processes.
