Judaic Studies pres.

The Navel of the Dream: Freud and/in Yiddish

Naomi Seidman, University of Toronto

Freud Freud
This lecture will explore the role of Yiddish in Freud's writings and in their translational afterlife. It will address the question not only about how much Yiddish Freud knew, but also about why this question persists, and what impulses and assumptions underlie it. In this regard, it will lay out the parallels between the psychoanalytic archeology of the stratified psyche and the linguistic structure of the modern Jewish self, recognizing this double structure in the hysteria and Yiddish translation work of Anna O./Bertha Pappenheim.

There is both an accessible elevator and gender-neutral restroom on the first and second floor. If you have a disability that requires an accommodation, contact or 734-763-9047.
