Languages of loss: languages of connectedness.

Borossa, Julia (2004) Languages of loss: languages of connectedness. In: Lost childhood and the language of exile. Szekacs-Weisz, Judith and Ward, Ivan, eds. The Freud Museum, Imago East West, pp. 29-41. ISBN 0948687355. [Book Section]


The work which forms the basis of this essay was first presented at an international conference co-organised by the Freud Museum and the Multilingual Psychotherapy Association in 2001, related themes formed part of a paper given at the University of California, San Marcos, ‘Travel, Exile and the Ego Ideal' (2003). The ideas presented here on language, estrangement and the working through to connectedness, now form an integral part of my research on the horizons of possibility of psychoanalysis as a cultural, clinical and political discourse. The particular use of the memoir and the imaginative narrative as expressive of theoretical concerns has proved particularly fruitful and has elements in common with art writing as practiced by Adrian Rifkin and others.
