In this graduate seminar, we will read Franz Fanon's classic texts Black Skin, White Masks and The Wretched of the Earth in order to trace and interrogate his evolving critiques of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytical clinical practices in the colonial world. We will examine his critiques of Hegel's theory of the subject and Lacanian models of subject formation and his call for the incorporation of social analysis in approaches to Black subjectivity and psychic life (sociogeny). What implications does sociogeny have for reading the black body and its relation to self and society? Our reading of Fanon's texts will be placed in dialogue with works by Aimé Césaire, Jean-Paul Sartre, Hannah Arendt, Hortense Spillers, Saidiya Hartman, and David Marriott.
