CLA 3rd Annual Conference: Sexual Identity

The Centre for Lacanian Analysis are having their 3rd annual conference. The topic is sexual identity:

As opposed to what Freud maintains, it is man – I mean he who happens to be male without knowing what to do with it – who approaches woman, or who can believe that he approaches her …  But what he approaches is the cause of his desire that I have designated as object a. That is the act of love. To make love, as the very expression indicates, is poetry. There is a world between poetry and the act. The act of love is the male’s polymorphous perversion, in the case of speaking being. – Jacques Lacan
