Is racial conflict determined by biology or society? So many conflicts appear to be caused by racial and ethnic differences; for example, the cities of Britain and America are regularly affected by race riots. It is argued by socio-biologists and some schools of psychoanalysis that our instincts are programmed to hate those different to us by evolutionary and developmental mechanisms. This book argues against this line, proposing an alternative drawing on insights from diverse disciplines including anthropology, social psychology and linguistics, to give power-relations a critical explanatory role in the generation of hatreds. Farhad Dalal argues that people differentiate between races in order to make a distinction between the 'haves' and 'must-not-haves', and that this process is cognitive, emotional and political rather than biological. Examining the subject over the past thousand years, Race, Colour and the Processes of Racialisation covers: * psychoanalytic and other theories of racism * a new theorisation of racism based on group analytic theory * a general theory of difference based on the works of Fanon, Elias, Matte-Blanco and Foulkes * application of this theory to race and racism. Farhad Dalal concludes that the structures of society are reflected in the structures of the psyche, and both of these are colour coded. This book will be invaluable to students, academics and practitioners in the areas of psychoanalysis, group analysis, psychotherapy and counselling.

Welche Konsequenzen hat die (post-)koloniale Kritik für die westlich geprägten Gender Studies? Wie sieht eine (post-)koloniale Intervention aus, die weiße Frauen und queere Individuen als westliche, hegemoniale Subjekte sichtbar macht, jedoch nicht ihre Abgrenzungen gegenüber Heteronormativität und patriarchalen Strukturen verdeckt? Dieser Band versammelt Beiträge aus unterschiedlichen disziplinären Feldern und gibt einen breit gefächerten Einblick in Ansätze transformativer Kritik, die Geschlecht und Sexualität als westliche Konzeptionen aufdecken und herausfordern.

Drawn from the John Bowlby Memorial Conference, the theme of this book addresses the often hidden and ignored subject of attachment, race and culture. Can our individual narratives in relation to race, culture and attachment be unmasked in the therapeutic dyad to reveal our human connectedness? The contributors explore how the conscious and unconscious meanings of therapists' and clients' racial and cultural identities shape the dialogue between them. How this emerges for both therapist and client in their work together is illustrated in clinical accounts.Contributors: Kimberlyn Leary; Farhad Dalal; Barbara Ashton; Cascia Davis; Zack Eleftheriadou; Irris Singer; and Kate White

Drawing on the new field of complex adaptive systems and biosemiotics, this groundbreaking synthesis of evolutionary and cultural theory argues that—far from being opposed to nature—culture is the way that nature has evolved in human beings. This major contribution to both cultural studies and ecocriticism shows how complexity and biosemiotics forge the link between nature and culture, and provide a new and better understanding of how the whole human creature operates as both a social and biological being.

"Nella Larsens Roman "Seitenwechsel" ist das Gegenstück zu Scott Fitzgeralds "Der große Gatsby"." Irene Redfield flieht vor der Hitze eines heißen Sommertages ins Dachrestaurant des Drayton Hotels in Chicago. Sie traut ihren Augen kaum, als sie hier ihre Freundin aus Kindertagen wiedertrifft. Clare Kendry ist nach dem frühen Tod ihres Vaters bei weißen Verwandten aufgewachsen und der Kontakt zwischen den Freundinnen abgerissen. Zwei Jahre später zieht Clare nach New York und meldet sich bei Irene, die in Harlem lebt, während Clare in der Welt der Weißen zu Hause ist. Clare ist mit einem Rassisten verheiratet, der nicht auch nur entfernt von ihrer schwarzen Herkunft ahnt. Zudem beunruhigt Irene mehr und mehr, daß Clare eine magische Wirkung auf ihren eigenen Ehemann zu haben scheint. Clare, die Wanderin zwischen den Welten, liebt die Gefahr und das Spiel mit dem Feuer - und droht ständig, sich zu verbrennen.

Julia Kristeva hat eine bahnbrechende Studie zu Depression und Melancholie vorgelegt. Bereits die Nervalsche Metapher der ”schwarzen Sonne“ verweist auf das Düster-Gleißende ihres Gegenstandes. Kristeva gelingt es, den in der Gegenwart immer stärker aufs Pathologische abzielenden und damit verengenden Diskurs zu jenem ”depressiv-melancholischen Komplex“ aufzubrechen. Sie zeigt, dass in Depression und Melancholie die Quelle von Leiden liegt, aber auch und davon nicht zu trennen: von Kreativität. In den frühen Theorien von Freud und Abraham kaschiert die Depression eine Aggressivität gegen das verlorene Objekt und offenbart darin eine Ambivalenz des Depressiven gegenüber dem Objekt seiner Trauer. Darüber hinaus verweisen neuere Theorien zum Narzissmus - wie die von Edith Jacobson und Béla Grunberger - auf Depression als archaischen Ausdruck einer nicht symbolisierbaren, unbenennbaren narzisstischen Wunde. Daran und an Melanie Klein wie Jacques Lacan anknüpfend, kommt Julia Kristeva zu dem Befund: dass der Depressive nicht um ein Objekt trauert, sondern um ein sich der Sinngebung entziehendes ”Reales“. In eindringlichen klinischen Beispielen sowie in vier kunst- und literaturtheoretischen Arbeiten zu Holbein d. J., Nerval, Dostojewski und Marguerite Duras veranschaulicht Julia Kristeva ihren Ansatz, dass die Depression nicht nur eine zu behandelnde Pathologie ist, sondern auch ein Diskurs in einer Sprache, die es zu erlernen gilt.
