          TALK: The Discarded and The Dignified—The Politics of the Fear that “Only One Can Live”
McCune Conference Room, UCSB Humanities & Social Sciences Building, Room 6046, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
TALK: The Discarded and The Dignified—The Politics of the Fear that “Only One Can Live” Jessica Benjamin (Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, NYU) Thursday, February 23, 2017 / 4:00 PM McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB In this talk Benjamin brings together her psychoanalytic theory of the Third together with her experience with dialogue in the Middle East and with colleagues involved in post-war reconciliation in Rwanda, South Africa and Chile. She suggests ways in which we can think about deep psychological structures in both collectives and individuals that lead to fear-based hatred of the “Other.” Why is it so hard for some of us to meet the urgent call of victims? Why do some political movements, as we see in the present, engage in denial or even destructive attacks on those who are vulnerable? The historical efforts to redress this find that we may be in a struggle over whose suffering is considered worthy of attention. In such cases we find the imaginary position to be “Only one can live.” This fantasy may underlie the fact that in some instances where people are subjected to great suffering and helplessness this makes them and their injuries appear threatening to those who are (more) safe. The ultimate issue becomes the denial versus recognition of all suffering and human needs with the idea that “all should be able to live.” Jessica Benjamin is considered to be one of the most important and influential psychoanalysts of the last four decades. She was one of the founders of relational psychoanalysis, and was one of the first to introduce feminism and gender studies into psychoanalytic thought. Her early studies included social structure and feminism, but more recently she is known for her effort to explain the classical aspects of psychoanalysis using object relations, relational psychoanalysis, and feminist thought. She has made significant contributions to the concept of intersubjectivity in psychoanalysis. In 2015 Jessica Benjamin received the Hans-Kilian-Award for her achievements in the fields of psychoanalysis, feminist psychology and the theory of intersubjective recognition. Sponsored by the Literature and the Mind Program and the IHC’s Community Matters series.

25          CONFERENCE: Invisible Empire: Spirits and Animism in Contemporary Japan
UCSB Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UCSB Social Sciences and Media Studies Building, 2135, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
A striking aspect of contemporary Japanese culture is the pervasive nature of discussions and representations of “spirits” (tama or tamashii), generally rooted in vaguely articulated discourses on “animism” (animizumu) that often exist separately from explicit religious forms. Indeed, to many Japanese, their country has a split ontological outlook: on the one hand, there is Japan as the concrete place of their everyday lives; on the other, an invisible realm populated by all kinds of presences: ghosts, spirits, ancestors, gods. Moreover, ghosts, spirits, and the invisible dimension of reality occupy an important place in literature, the arts, and popular culture (cinema, games, manga comics, etc.). This conference takes seriously the metaphysical implications of the contemporary Japanese culture of spirits by analyses of various modes of representation of spirits in contemporary art, architecture, visual culture, literature, cinema, and diffuse spirituality, while at the same time addressing their underlying intellectual and religious assumptions

          The Purpose of Meditation in Buddhism
Stone Pine Hall, 210 S. H Street, Lompoc
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
Meditation has become widely popular in the few years because of the proven health and wellness benefits for people who meditate regularly. But the Buddha taught meditation, not merely as a temporary solution for anxiety, or for greater productivity, or even for increased mindfulness of a fleeting “present moment” — but to completely transform the inner landscape of our mind by cultivating special attitudes that make our mind peaceful.   ($20 - $30)
