Mourning’s Dissonance: Who am I Who Mourns

and Whom do I Mourn?

Presented by

Mary Lynne Ellis

In this presentation Mary Lynne Ellis will explore new possibilities of interpreting experiences of bereavement. She will focus on the shifting identities of the mourner and the mourned and the relations between them.  She will discuss Freud and Klein’s contributions in the light of contemporary literary/autobiographical writing (Colm Tóibín) and phenomenological and post-modernist philosophers (Merleau-Ponty, Barthes, and Judith Butler). Her perspective emphasizes the importance of attending in the psychoanalytic relationship to the embodied uniqueness of individuals’ conscious and unconscious languages of mourning. She will explore how these are shaped by gender, race, class, sexuality, age, and physical ability within particular socio-cultural contexts.

The presentation will be followed by a short showing of photographs on power point from Mary Lynne’s exhibition Empty Shoes, Lost Ground.

Following on from this year’s AGIP Annual Lecture presented by Coline Covington: ‘Children of Perpetrators; Living in the Shadows of Evil’,  on Sunday 11 June at noon, AGIP’s Film Club presents David Evans astonishing documentary  which depicts real lives lived in the shadows of  notorious war criminals and the psychic outcomes of such an existence for two very different men. In her excellent lecture Coline asked the question ‘How do you live with the knowledge that your father ordered the death of thousands of innocent people’? David Evans film goes some way to answering this question with fascinating and differing results.

The Documentary will be presented by Don Butler and will be followed with a Q&A session.
