Since 1985, our Erikson Institute’s endowed scholar-in-residence program has brought a broad array of more than 50 individuals to the Center to carry out their scholarly research projects in conversation with the clinical staff. After a few years of not being able to welcome a scholar on campus due to the pandemic, we are excited to have Eve Watson, PhD, join us this spring.
Watson has been involved in psychotherapy training, education, and research since 2005 and is published in Ireland and abroad in topics such as sexuality, culture, literature, film, psychoanalysis, and the role of psychotherapy in the modern era. She is co-editor of the book Clinical Encounters in Sexuality (2017, Punctum Books) and is editor of Lacunae, the International Journal for Lacanian Psychoanalysis.
While at Riggs, she will be working on a book project, Lacanian Film Analysis: A New Look, which argues for the importance of psychoanalytic conceptualizations in film analysis and the use of film analysis as a support in the teaching of clinical psychoanalytic concepts and theory.
